Walking Trails at Topsy Farms

Topsy Farms’ land, on the north-west corner of Amherst Island, includes over 200 acres of bushland, part of a large forest network covering much of the island. It abounds with natural life, and continues to the secluded western shoreline on our farm, the ‘bluffs’. We have re-established pathways first used by deer, then cleared by several generations of farmers to gather firewood and to work our venerable Sugar Shack.

Topsy offers a groomed 2 km trail to the Sugar Shack year-round (weather and conditions permitting). Depending on the season, you might see lambs being birthed in adjacent fields, or frolicking; you will see avian and wildlife. This is a ‘take only pictures; leave only footprints’ situation. There are no facilities available on the trail. We reserve the right to close the trails for safety concerns.

We ask hikers to register at our Wool Shed, take our contact numbers in case of need, and donate $5/person to help us maintain the trails. Pick up a map at the Wool Shed or download now.
