Mabel Davis Trail
Between “The Tannery” and Bayview Parkway there is a strip of land that was donated to the Conservation Authority by Mabel Davis, a resident of Newmarket. While this 7.25 hectare area is surrounded by urban development it manages to offer a wide range of plants and animals including cotton tail rabbits, muskrats, and racoons.
The 1400 metre trail, which is an important link in a municipal trail system, runs along the banks of the Holland River and backs onto the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority’s Newmarket office.
Directions: Mabel Davis Conservation Area can be accessed from both Davis Drive and Bayview Parkway Information provided by the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation website.
