The smartphone-enabled maps are now available for 11 of Quinte Conservation’s areas around the watershed, including:

• Beaver Meadow
• Depot Lakes
• H.R. Frink Centre
• Little Bluff
• Macaulay Mountain
• Massassauga Point
• O’Hara Mill Homestead
• Potter’s Creek

• Sidney
• Vanderwater

Those interested in using the new map service may download the free Avenza Maps app on iOS and Android.
Dennehy adds, “Once maps have been downloaded, guests can track their location on the conservation area trails without requiring the use of mobile data, which we hope contributes to the best and most effortless experience on our trails.”

Easy-to-follow instructions for using the app can be found online at on the conservation area pages to facilitate the use of these maps and to encourage hikes that are enjoyable all year round.
