As per Quinte Conservation "Trails are closed every year from mid-October to mid-November as neighbouring properties allow hunting activities. We remind visitors that hunting is not permitted on campsites or trails." Note that Depot Lakes Conservation Area trails are mostly well marked, but it is easy to get turned around in sections and navigation skills are recommended. Poison Ivy in area, do not wonder off trail. Trails are not maintained in the winter.
These are the lands of the Anishinabewaki ᐊᓂᔑᓈᐯᐗᑭ, Mississauga, and Wendake-Nionwentsïo people.
