Purple Woods is located north of Oshawa. This 41 acre property, located on the top of the Oak Ridges Moraine, is home to a large and actively tapped 150 year old sugar maple forest. The trees have tubes attached.
The property has a sugar shack where sap is boiled down to make maple syrup.
There are 2 short trails here:
Some views from the trails:
Not too many birds about but I did hear a Song Sparrow on this 4 degree, overcast day.
Daffodils, that come before the swallow dares,
and take the winds of March with beauty. – William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
Ahhhh…there was a Parkbus Active Days trip planned for here that had to be cancelled. The next best thing!
