Happy Valley Forest – Barnett Property

The Happy Valley Forest is one of the largest remaining intact upland deciduous forest on Canada’s Oak Ridges Moraine. Located in King Township, just northwest of the Greater Toronto Area, this 1,560-acre (631-hectare) area supports more than 110 breeding bird species, and is an outstanding example of the mature sugar maple and beech upland forests that are characteristic of the Moraine. The area also holds special cultural significance, given its association with the Toronto Carrying-place, a historic portage and travel route.
