Our winter season in Copeland Forest is off to a great start and the snow conditions are good for a winter outing in the forest. Please note that the parking lots on Ingram Road at Line 3 and Line 4 are NOT plowed. However, the Township of Oro-Medonte will continue to provide two lay-by parking areas: one on Ingram Road at Line 3 (marked as P1 on our trails map) and also a second one on Line 5, north of the train tracks (marked as P3 on our trails map). The trails map can be downloaded from our website www.copelandfriends.ca or purchased for a toonie at these locations: in Craighurst, the Esso, Loobie’s Restaurant and Woodside Pottery & Gallery. In Barrie, at Bikeland, Greenhawk and Sojourn. In Orillia at The Birdhouse Nature Company and the Couchiching Conservancy. CFFA members receive a free copy of the map with their membership.
