      Situated in the beautiful jack pine forests just north of Timmins, the Hersey Lake Conservation Area is a year-round recreational facility. The area offers a variety of outdoor and leisurely activities for everyone to enjoy.

      The trail system in the conservation area ties in with the larger Timmins Recreation Trail Network, a +45 km non-motorized trail system stretching across the community. Each major intersection of doubletrack trails within Hersey Lake is named and marked with a sign pole. These signs give directions and distances to other locations within and outside the conservation area. Over 6.8km of singletrack trails have been established by the Timmins Cycling Club. These trails are not marked by formal signs, so keep an eye out for blazes, flagging tape and painted markers.

      The Conservation Area was purchased by the Mattagami Region Conservation Authority in 1979 in order to preserve this unique area and develop it for the benefit of the Community. At the present time the conservation area is 226 hectares (560 acres) in size with the lake being the centre of all activity.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Shuttleable: YES
