      Crothers Woods is a 52-hectare mature maple-beech-oak woodland located in the Don River valley. Many trees in Crothers Woods are more than a century old, with parts of the forest remaining in much the same condition as it was before European settlement. In 1995, the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) designated this site as an Environmentally Significant Area due to its diverse, mature and relatively undisturbed forest and the presence of herbaceous plants and tree species that are rare in the Toronto region. The forest includes beaked hazel, bitternut hickory, black walnut, blue beech, butternut (a Provincially endangered tree species), eastern hemlock and sugar maple trees and herbaceous species such as bloodroot, jack-in-the-pulpit, mayapple, trillium and trout lily. This unique forest also attracts diverse bird species. A recent TRCA study identifieds 26 birds that might nest and breed in the area, including eastern wood-pewee, great crested flycatcher and red-tailed hawk.

      As such, Crothers Woods offers a unique opportunity to escape into nature and is a popular destination for trail enthusiasts, with approximately 10 kilometres of natural surface trails.
