The Orono Crown Lands occupy 633 acres of the former Ontario Tree Nursery. Thirteen km of well marked and maintained trails meander through a varied habitat of mature evergreen and deciduous hardwood forests. Many trails are easy walking, with benches and a large picnic area west of the Ochonski Rd. entrance. Wilmot Creek, one of Ontario’s best cold-water creeks, runs through the property. A spawning run of rainbow trout occurs in mid-April with a salmon run in late August.
Activities include walking, hiking, bicycle and horseback riding, dog walking, as well as cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter.
We are a nonprofit organization focused on the maintenance and sustainability of the Orono Crown Lands. The land was acquired from the Ministry of Natural Resources and is maintained by the community.
Whether you like hiking, biking, fishing, skiing, snowshoeing, or just simply taking your dog for a walk in nature you can do that while enjoying the beautiful landscape of the Orono Crown Lands. Come visit and see for yourself.
