      The Northeast Woods Lazo Marsh Conservation Area comprises approximately 467 acres (186 ha) of land under three jurisdictions — the Comox Valley Regional District, the Town of Comox, and the Government of British Columbia. About one-third of conservation area is used for light recreation with many popular trails for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding.

      Currently, several kilometres of popular trails crisscross the conservation area from the sand pit near Pritchard Road through forest, meadow and marsh to Curtis Road. Seasonal, walking-only trails are identified at the trail start with an orange metal triangle. All-season, multi-use trails are identified with a green triangle. Trail name signs are posted above the triangle markers.

      Trails in the Lazo Marsh area are often wet and are therefore designated “walking-only”. Other trails maybe overgrown, rough and/or hazardous due to heavy rains or winds. Periodically, trails are decommissioned to protect sensitive areas and permit natural growth to re-establish itself. These trails have been blocked with logs or rocks and visitors are asked to respect the closures.

      Visitors are advised to stay on marked trails for their own safety. Many rusting metal objects, remnants of the Comox municipal dump, are hidden in tangled undergrowth. Deep holes from abandoned wells and diggings also exist in some forested areas.

      Mountain bike enthusiasts often share the trails with walkers and hikers. All users are expected to show
      courtesy to others enjoying the conservation area. The preservation of this beautiful area depends to a large extent on the cooperation and vigilance of visitors.

      The park is open from dawn to dusk all year. No motorized vehicles or fires are permitted within the conservation area boundaries. All visitors to the conservation area enjoy it at their own risk.
