Ontario Heritage Trust reopens some trails and natural properties

TORONTO – While the Trust’s cultural sites remain closed to the public to protect the health and safety of the public, staff and partners, some of our natural areas and trails are now open. Enjoying natural properties is a great way to maintain mental and physical health and wellness, and the Trust is ready to welcome back local visitors to our properties.

Visitors can also experience these and other sites virtually – Doors Open Ontario has gone digital for the spring and we look forward to seeing you back in communities once it is safe to do so. The Trust continues to protect and conserve Ontario’s heritage and share our stories.

In consultation with Credit Valley Conservation and the Bruce Trail Conservancy, we will keep the Cheltenham Badlands site closed at this time. For trails and natural areas open in this area, check local listings, Credit Valley Conservation and the Bruce Trail Conservancy.

The Trust reminds visitors that Trust-owned properties are often managed by partner organizations and that you should check local listings before visiting. We also remind any potential visitors to bring water, hand sanitizer and other necessities while also continuing to observe physical distancing guidelines while using our properties.

If there are any questions about the partial reopening of trails and natural sites, please contact us for more information.

Please check our website and follow our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to enjoy exhibits, share stories and explore the province with us.
