Meet at Rails End Gallery to carpool to the trail head. Join Margaret Dobrzensky, who along with her mother Leopoldina, generously donated Barnum Creek Nature Reserve to the Haliburton Highlands Land Trust. Discover more about the natural and cultural heritage of this unique 500-acre property where you will find a variety of ecosystems, including mature forests, open fields and wetlands. Barnum Creek bisects the property and serves as an important habitat for moose, deer, wolf, beaver and a wide variety of bird species. We will start on an easy, wide trail through the forest but will soon leave that trail and climb to a ridge where we will have lovely views of the valley below. Suitable for teens and adults, no dogs please
