PERSONALIZED RECOMMENDATIONS

You are more than welcome to ask us in person, over the phone, or via email for tourism-related information. The staff of the Craigleith Heritage Depot have made an effort to check out many local points of interest for themselves and would be happy to provide first-hand accounts of their experiences to those seeking recommendations.

Recommendation of the Month: Museum Assistant Madeline loves a good trail. One of her winter favourites is the Nipissing Ridge Trail, located in Craigleith just a few minutes' walk from the Craigleith Heritage Depot's front door. It's a beginner's trail that winds through a beautiful wooded area around a stream. Ask her to point it out on a map for you if you have trouble finding it.
