SHEPPARD'S BUSH CONSERVATION AREA REVIEWS
Such beautiful walking trails!! Lots of birds and wildlife. There is a tree that is the biggest I have ever seen, the width is incredible...worth a look for sure!!! Lots of benches to sit and enjoy the views
A good place to walk with kids and dogs. There is a small trail along a stream beside the main pathway which is more interested.
The park is great for an easy hike and bike riding. Enough parking

NOKIIDAA TRAIL REVIEWS
Lovely trail with a good mix of path and boardwalk. Take care as there are lots of people on bicycles on this trail. The mix of urban and nature scenery makes this trail more interesting. Trail is great for walking and cycling. Will be sure to bring our bikes next time.
I really like this place. Its spacious, some areas shaded, close to train tracks, a river, and great for dogs! We crossed the bridge and took the trail under the trees. There were many swimming spots for our dogs. They lovedddd it!!
Excellent place for a long stroll, run or a gravel bike ride, where you can ride from Holland Landing to Newmarket to Aurora. Nice and flat with a few interesting side trails (that are not maintained). Watch out for cyclists though. The parking lot at Holland Landing is small and fills up quickly on weekends. Try the parking lot at Greenlane east of 2nd Concession instead. If that's full there's also the East Gwillimbury GO Station just across Greenlane with plenty of parking and it's right next to trail.

TIM JONES TRAIL REVIEWS
20 km from Aurora community centre to Fairy Lake in Newmarket. Beautiful trail with so many interesting trees with label. Learn a lot. Surprised that pine tree has beautiful flowers.
Amazing trail and pathways in Aurora. Definitely a quiet and science space to visit and to watch the fall colors!
Nice long trail beside the city. The trail is a part of York region's Nokiidaa Trail and stretches very long connecting Newmarket, Aurora and Oak Ridge. Suitable for bike riding.
