Enchanting forests beckon you to discover the beauty that is the MapleCross Nature Reserve.

Enter a green forest paradise with gently rolling hills that beckon you to stop and take in the beauty of the mixed aged forest. Listen carefully and you can distinguish the Eastern Wood-pewee singing his song through the orchestra of birdsong as a Pileated Woodpecker taps away in the distance.
