Flesherton is the Walking Village! With pleasant village streets, featuring century brick homes, wood barns and sheds. And, we have two distinct trail areas right in the Village: The Flesherton Forest and the Flesherton Hills. The Flesherton Forest has a figure 8 loop trail through an easy walking area that features a stream, hardwood and cedar forest, ferns, open views and old meadows. The Forest is accessible at the end of Highland Dr, past the Arena, in a Grey Sauble Conservation Management Area.
The Flesherton Hills is another asset for Village walkers: a 100 acre tract of walking trails behind Grey Highlands Secondary School (GHSS) and Macphail Memorial Elementary School and accessible to the public. Features include a picnic pavilion, ponds, a beaver dam, forests, fields, an old orchard and new trees planted and maintained by the Environmental Studies Program (ESP) students at GHSS. A trail guide and some geological information is posted at the entrance to the Hills.
