Rogers Reservoir Conservation Area
Encounter great blue herons, American coots and sora rails at Rogers Reservoir Conservation Area. This 68.3 hectare site is a great place to watch nesting birds, cast a fishing line, and cycle along trails which are part of the Nokiidaa Trail system linking the Towns of Aurora, Newmarket and East Gwillimbury. The concrete lock and its swing bridge are remnants of a 'Ghost' Canal System built and abandoned in the early 1900's - without ever having been used.
Construction Notice: Please be advised that a section of the Nokiidaa Trail through Rogers Reservoir Conservation Area is closed until the end of summer 2017 due to construction along 2nd Concession in the Town of East Gwillimbury. Please observe posted trail signage. For more information visit
