Northumberland County Forest

Included in the over 45 kilometres of hiking trails within the County Forest are two dedicated Universal Trails. We built these trails to minimize barriers to accessibility. We wanted to make recreational opportunities within the forest accessible to even more members of the community.

These trails (located off Beagle Club trailhead and Carstairs trailhead) offer:

  • Firm and stable trail surface
  • Gentle grades
  • Accessible benches and rest areas throughout – you never have to go more than 364 metres before finding a place to rest
  • Wheelchair accessible portable outhouse available at trailheads
