      Stretching nearly two and a half kilometers along the west side of the Beaver Valley, the Kimberley Forest extends north from the Beaver Valley Ski Club nearly to the former Talisman Ski Resort. A large tract of public land, in part it extends all the way up the escarpment, from the Beaver River in the bottom of the valley to the 7th Line on the west.

      North and west of the provincial Crown lands managed by the Ministry of Natural Resources are the Wodehouse Karst property, owned by the Grey Sauble Conservation Authority, and Kimberley Springs, now owned by the Bruce Trail Conservancy. The entire area is located in the Municipality of Grey Highlands. In the past this area was loosely referred to as the Wodehouse Karst but for convenience, the entire area is now being referred to as the ‘Kimberley Forest’.

      The escarpment slopes on this property are sugar maple forest, and they are riddled with trails originally established for cross-country skiing 40 years ago. A township road allowance also runs through the area. Today many of these trails are in a state of disrepair due to years of neglect.

      A local group comprised of representatives from all user groups is currently embarking on a project to restore these trails to their former glory. During this period, please respect all signs indicating permanent or temporary trail closures.
