Simcoe Trail

Between Mount Albert Road and Queensville Sideroad, the Simcoe Trail connects area residents to Anchor Park and the Holland Landing Community Centre and Library.

Section One is short and sweet: starting from Royal Cedar Court it leads to Colony Trail Blvd. Here you follow the road to Stonehill Blvd. where at the north-west corner is a new stormwater pond helping to reduce loadings of phosphorus into Lake Simcoe.

Section Two is off Thompson Dr.; either continue on Colony Trail Blvd. to Oak Ridge Ct. and head north or, take Stonehill Blvd. north and go west. An asphalt trail leads into a cedar forest; head east and cross the wooden bridge; look for wild roses and note a variety of coniferous and deciduous trees. Follow the trail north-westerly to the Holland Landing Community Centre and Library; enjoy a game of tennis or basketball or, stay to the east and continue northbound to Beckett Ave.

Section Three to Anchor Park; take Beckett to Hollis Cres. A walkway brings you to Anchor Court and continue through to Cedar St.

Section Four is the Holland Landing Prairie Reserve. It includes a planted coniferous forest from the 1970s as well as areas with some rare prairie plant species near the hydro towers by Queens Court.

Please note that the Simcoe Trail should be considered moderate in difficulty as it contains sections that are uneven, rocky, wet, narrow, or pathways that may be root-covered.
