Off the Beaten Path
Perfect little getaway 20 minutes North of the 401 from Belleville Ontario. The 257 hectare (635 acre) Vanderwater Conservation Area is located 3 km east of Thomasburg off Highway 37, at 512 Vanderwater Road. This lovely outdoor spot is picturesquely located along the banks of the Moira River, where the water cascades over a series of limestone steps. The 15 km of trails explore a wide range of natural environments from mature cedar forests in the low lying areas to hardwood and coniferous forests that cover the slopes and high ground. The Conservation Area is a popular destination each winter for cross-country skiers. A steep ridge runs the length of the property and several spots along the trails afford a scenic view of the land towards the west. Ski trails arenot groomed.
