There are several trailheads: Pioneer Drive at Kimberley Forest Side Trail; Sideroad 7A and 7th Line at Wodehouse Karst Side Trail (all Bruce Trail access points); at the north end of Windy Lane Drive just north of the top of Beaver Valley Ski Club; and Grey Road 30 at Sideroad 4A. It’s a beautiful section of the Beaver Valley and only minutes away from some of the best sourdough in the land at the Kimberley General Store. If you want to help out with trail-build days, get involved, donate or become a sponsor, check kimberleyforest.ca. There is no designated parking area on the property yet, though the Friends are in discussion with landowners to establish one. Please do not park on private property or block private driveways at any of the trailheads. Committee member Jason Petznick has loaded the trails onto the Trailforks app and provided us with some routes to check out. If you don’t have the app, check out the signpost maps at some of the main intersections, or the “Trails” page at kimberleyforest.ca.
