Pinhey Forest Trail

This is a magical park. I really enjoyed exploring it. I was slightly saddened that some of the trails were close, and some were still icy.

This trail is located in the far right, back parking lot of the Nepean Sportsplex. The address is: 1701 Woodroffe Avenue, in Nepean, Ontario.

Facing the front of the Sportsplex from Woodroffe Ave, take the far right entrance all the way to the back. The trail is on your back right.

One of the trails near P15 has an outhouse, and you can use the facilities inside the Sportsplex if you’re hiking during business hours.

I ended up walking this trail in reverse. The only reason I know that is because have outdoor fitness stations setup to upgrade your outdoor experience.

There was some ice present on some trails that made them a bit treacherous, and some parts were very muddy.

This time of year, March 13th, you can expect that.

I really enjoyed this trail. The loop is very short, maybe a little over 1 km. If you take the side trail, it will extend your steps. The park boasts 6.4 km of trails, when they’re all open.

There are maps at a couple of corners so you don’t get lost. I really appreciate this!

If the trails were all open and accessible, I would give this park a 5/5. For now, I give it a 4/5.

Give it a visit and smell the pine.
