Shaw Woods Outdoor Education Centre
Shaw Woods is a gorgeous nature preserve located near Cobden, ON. Stretching over 200 hectares and managed by the Shaw Woods Outdoor Education Centre, it has a 13-kilometre network of self-guided walking trails that meander through woods and wetlands, over boardwalks, beside water, and up to a lookout.

The "West Side" of the preserve is a protected old-growth forest where a trail leads through towering hemlock, beech and maple trees, some 200 years old or more. The trail includes a “boulder garden,” a scattering of hulking stone (“glacial erratics”) left by retreating glaciers millennia ago.

The "East Side" trail runs beside the Snake River before climbing past a mix of old-growth pine and younger trees to the lookout. That lookout perches high above Shaw Pond along the Dore Scarp, an escarpment named for nearby Lake Dore and dating back about 500 million years.

Shaw Woods is open year round. There is no formal admission fee but donations are greatly appreciated.
