wildwood trails

Wildwood's four hiking & biking trails range in length from 1.2 km to the 25 km Lake Trail.
 

Please remember trail etiquette -

take only pictures,

leave only footprints,

use only marked trails!

Trails 

All trails are multi-purpose and can be used by both hikers and cyclists, by permit only. The trails range from flat to rugged terrain with areas of steep hills, exposed roots and rocks. Plan ahead and know your abilities as well as the areas through which you are hiking or biking. 

All trail users must have a seasonal pass or a daily pass receipt. Trail pass revenue contributes to trail improvements and management. For anyone camping, access to the trail is included.

All bikers should travel counter clockwise on odd dates (1, 3, 5...)and clockwise on even dates (2, 4, 6...). Enjoy the trails and please respect the environment by bringing all trash out with you.

If you are heading clockwise on an even-numbered date, please start at the grassy area leading towards the pool. From here, follow the "Lake Trail/follow road to Trail" signs mounted on trees along the way. This route will take you to the forest entrance. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. 

If you come across any hazards or concerns on the trail, please let the gate staff know.
