Harkaway Forest is east of the Robson Road trail and is owned by Grey County.

A nature trail through hardwoods and evergreens, this 2 km multi-use trail is used by hikers, horseback riders; ATVs in the summer, and snowmobiles in the winter.

Harkaway Forest is open to hunters at certain times of the year.

For ATVs, Harkaway Forest trail is open from the day after Victoria Day weekend(1) (to accommodate the wild turkey hunt) to October 15th (or snow, whatever comes first).

Parking is located off the Townline just north of Markdale.
