Claireville Conservation Area is 848 hectares of natural and forested area that straddles Peel Region and Toronto.

Claireville Conservation Area (CCA) is the largest natural setting of its kind, on the doorstep of four major GTA cities: Brampton, Mississauga, Toronto and Vaughan.

The natural landscape of CCA boasts wetlands, valleys, forests, grasslands, and the west branch of the Humber River and its tributaries.

Winter Safety Message

TRCA reminds all nature seekers to be extremely cautious when enjoying time outside this winder, and to stay on designated trails at all times.

Ice is never 100% safe. Please STAY OFF local TRCA rivers, streams, ponds, reservoirs, wetland and marches. Conditions are not being monitored and ice may be unsafe.

Venturing out onto the ice is NOT a permitted activity at TRCA parks. Do not put yourself and others at risk.


Please Note:

  • Prior to coming to this location, every visitor must do the Ontario Ministry of Health self-assessment for COVID-19. If they do not pass the assessment, they should not visit the location.
  • No washrooms on site. (Please plan ahead.)
  • Limited or no waste receptacles. (Please carry out litter.)

The Nature School Comes to Claireville

Toronto and Region Conservation Authority’s (TRCA) second Nature School program is set to open at Claireville Conservation Area.

This registered outdoor alternative private school is now accepting preschool and primary school students.

The Nature School takes place in a natural outdoor setting and provides students with an opportunity to direct their learning through an emergent and inquiry-based approach to education.


Claireville North Multi-use Trail Project

TRCA staff are currently hard at work constructing 3.9 kilometres of new granular multi-use trails on the property.

When complete, the trail will connect a new trailhead and parking area off of Goreway Drive to the Conservation Drive parking lot south of Queen Street.

In addition to the development of the spine trail, three additional communities connections will be built, providing enhanced recreation opportunities and improved active-transportation in the area.

Ultimately, the trail will become a part of the West Humber Trail System and accomplish key objectives of the CCA Management Plan Update (2011), the TRCA Trail Strategy (2019), as well as Brampton’s Active Transportation Master Plan (2019).
