Clear Creek's heavily forested ravines contrast greatly with Southwestern Ontario's vast croplands. A tiny creek passes through some of Ontario's largest hardwood trees including towering oaks, hickories, maples, and ash. Early May is unsurpassed for the variety and colours of spring wildflowers, as well as colourful warblers returning after wintering in the tropics. This property was recently secured by the Nature Conservancy of Canada, and is in the process of becoming a provincial nature reserve. Bicyles are not allowed, but hikers are welcome on the trails.
From Chatham, take hwy 401 to exit#117 (Highgate), and take Orford-Bury Road south to Cochrane Line and turn left. Cochrane Line ends at Duart Rd where trail head is marked on south side of Cochrane Line, 100m west of Duart Rd.
