Visiting a Conservation Area? Check out these Important Reminders.
Please note: the Laurier Woods Conservation Area maps and brochure is currently under revision to reflect changes in the trails and completion of new boardwalks (including Michael's Boardwalk which now connects the purple trail).
Located in the heart of North Bay, this 250 acres encompasses a provincially significant wetland, rocky outcrops, upland forest and is a sanctuary to a broad range of wetland and woodland creatures, including migrating birds. Interpretive trail sites mark the 6.5 km of trails. Laurier Woods Conservation Area is owned in partnership with the Friends of Laurier Woods. This area is outstanding for birdwatching with 33 species of birds nesting in the Conservation Area.
Parking: Please note that if you are driving to Laurier Woods Conservation Area, there is plenty of parking at the Brule St. entrance/trailhead. The entrance off Laurier St only has very limited on-street parking spots available which are shared with the residents on the street. Please use the Brule St. entrance and parking lot.
