Crow’s Pass

About This Area

Located on the top of the Oak Ridges Moraine, Crow’s Pass Conservation Area (64 hectares) is a favourite destination for the recreational hiker. It offers three kilometres of forest-floor trails, along with a connection to the Oak Ridges Moraine Trail.
With close proximity to Chalk Lake, this area is part of a large and relatively unfragmented forested area that has been designated as a Natural Core Area on the Oak Ridges Moraine. The size and diversity of this largely undisturbed space makes it an important core wildlife habitat area with strong east-west natural connectivity along this portion of the Oak Ridges Moraine. Crow’s Pass Conservation Area makes up part of the regionally significant Nonquon Headwaters Area of Natural and Scientific Interest and contains several interesting wetlands that are typical of the rolling topography found within the Oak Ridges Moraine. Crow’s Pass Conservation Area was purchased in 2003 with support from the Oak Ridges Moraine Foundation, Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, and the Region of Durham. Roadside parking only, from May 1 to Thanksgiving.
