      Purple Woods Conservation Area is a great place to hike, year round, with a spectacular southern view, access to the Oak Ridges Trail, and our Sugar Shack (500 m) and accessible Discovery Walk (900 m) trails. Spring and fall migratory song birds, summer Monarch butterflies, and beautiful fall colours make this conservation area an all-seasons destination.

      ‚ÄčIn March, everything changes. This 41-acre property, located on the top of the Oak Ridges Moraine, is home to a large and actively tapped 150-year-old sugar maple forest and our annual Purple Woods Maple Syrup Festival. Purchase Festival tickets and discover how maple syrup production has changed from the early Indigenous Peoples' methods to the modern methods used today. Syrup and maple products are also available for sale during the Festival.
