Kortright Centre near Toronto is covered by woodland and pristine hiking trails
The Kortright Centre for Conservation in Vaughan is home to a beautiful pine forest with breathtaking nature trails and lookouts throughout its 800 acres.
There are eight different year-round trails throughout the area all under two kilometres in length and varying in difficulty from easy to moderate.
You can explore forests and meadows and walk a marsh boardwalk, all the while taking in incredible scenery and wildlife from a number of different lookout points.
The centre is home to several peregrine falcons and other birds of prey, including hawks and owls. The Raptor Centre at Kortright helps to facilitate the delivery of the Canadian Peregrine Foundation's successful outreach program.
There are events and programs for children, adults and seniors which cover a wide variety of activities within the Centre and its grounds.
The Centre is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Though you don't necessarily need to reserve tickets in advance, it's encouraged to avoid disappointment.
Tickets are $7.52 per adult, while park members get free admission.
Make sure to be respectful during your visit. Adhere to social distancing measures by visiting with a small group and pick up your trash to leave the area just as beautiful as you found it.
