Nature Conservancy of Canada
Visit Backus Woods

This winter, come and visit Backus Woods - a spectacular older growth forest in the heart of Norfolk County.

With over 21 kilometers of hiking trails to ski, snowshoe or birdwatch along - this Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) Nature Destination is the perfect way to enjoy nature this season. Listen for the distinctive gobble of resident turkeys. Keep an eye out for a flash of red from a pileated woodpecker.

NCC’s Nature Destinations program invites you to take a journey through some of the greatest examples of our country’s natural areas and to connect with nature. Ontario has three unique destinations you can visit, including Backus Woods.

You can now share your experience of this unique Carolinian ecosystem with us. NCC has recently created a digital guestbook where visitors can share their stories about Backus Woods, report wildlife observations or trail issues, or ask questions about the property or NCC. There are signs posted at each major entrance with the internet link and a QR code to direct visitors to the guestbook (http://www.natureconservancy.ca/backusbook).

Visitors who sign the guestbook will receive more information about Backus Woods and be put in touch with a relevant NCC staff member for any questions they may have. Come out to Backus Woods and let us know how your hike went!
