High Lonesome Nature Reserve - Pakenham ON

Listing Contact:

867 Carbine Road Pakenham ON K0A 2X0

High Lonesome, a 200-acre property located in the Pakenham Hills, was donated to the MMLT by the family of the late Barry Spicer in April 2012. A network of trails through the forests, over the hills and streams, by the ponds and through the meadows has been developed and cared for by the donor’s brother Ken Spicer. Ken has documented many of the natural riches found there, shared them with the MMLT and encouraged the Land Trust to complete the work he began. MMLT has committed to conserve High Lonesome as a nature reserve in perpetuity.

Trails are open to the public; organized groups must complete an application form with the MMLT.
