Durham Forest

Date: Sunday June 20

Hike Leader: Cathy MacDougall

The Durham Forest is a fairly large area. This week, we are hiking the Walker Tract.


  1. Take Highway 401 east to Brock Road in Pickering. This is Exit 399. If you hit Brock Street in Whitby, you have gone way too far.
  2. Drive north past Claremont to Copper's Corners, and turn right onto Regional Road 21. Regional Road 21 is Goodwood Road.
  3. Drive about four kilometers to Concession 7. There will be a Durham Forest sign on the right hand side.
  4. Turn right, south, and drive six kilometers.
  5. The parking area is just past the Glen Major Forest sign, about a kilometer past the Glen Major Presbyterian Church. Park in the parking area on the left hand, east side of the road.

If you reach the Pickering/Uxbridge townline, you have gone too far.


The hike will start at 11:00am. This is a moderately difficult hike with some hills, about 10 to 12km long.
