         Site Description and Birding Information: This portion of the Pine Grove Forest Reserve section of the "Greeenbelt" has 7.4 kilometres of trails between Bank Street, Lester, Albion and Leitrim Roads. The habitat consists of natural and planted forest, managed for lumber production. These trails (Trails 40, 41 & 42) form a variety of loops. Trail 40 is a 2.3 km loop from which the other two trails are accessed. These trails are designated as cross-country ski trails with winter parking. My guess is that they hope to discourage people from using these trails in golf season, or at least from using their parking then. Beware the killer mosquitos here in season.
