Warwick Forest is typical of the trails of Stormont, Dundas, & Gelngarry County in that it offers dense forest settings, peaceful paths, and an abundance of wildlife.

Suggested Stops

We ended up enjoying a meal from The Quirky Carrot after our previous hike, but there are plenty of great spots in Casselman if you’re looking for a place to stop before taking the highway home. They even have their own brewery, go Cassleman go! Check out Cassel Brewery. If you’re headed the other direction towards the 416, then a stop at Simply Baked in Winchester might be in order. Their menu simply makes my mouth water…

Important Insights

There is hunting in the area during provincial hunting season. Check before you go.
