many great memories orienteering there and the adjacent maps of glen major, uxbridge and walkers woods. My MSc research site was 2km west of Dagmar so lots of time spent training in those woods.

Congrats to Lia.

The woods just west are some of the best I've seen in Ontario but TOC was super frustrated dealing with TRCA. Hopefully sometime in the future, but not looking good.

yeah it is glen major to the west where my research site was.

Have you explored holding something at Pleasure Valley? Super nice woods as well. I grew up in the area - spoiled with the woods out there. Privately owned so less red tape likely.....but maybe more costly to hold an event?

I made the orienteering map of pleasure valley. perhaps not big enough but nice woods and i recall a really nice paved trail through the woods made for roller skating i think.

Here is the map. 35 years ago I made that map. Base map was terrible. Final product not that much better. ;-)

yep....I had the summer job of a roller patroller there. short shorts and a first aid pack, rolling the days away!

Hans: could you have a decent event right around the Dagmar alpine hill or too small?

You mean just the actual ski hill? Don't think so and half the hill was fenced in as well, approaching from the parking. Everything north of the road leading in to the hill is good.

No, guess I mean surrounding woods that's part of Dagmar property and not into the conservation area.

sketch the property boundary on the old map or google maps

if one is thinking of a private ski club DGL has a great map of caledon ski club. map is great. terrain would be great for a middle distance.

like Mike said, great for middle distance. The woods are a mix of pine plantations and deciduous. Lots of trails - a network of larger trails and MTB trails. Some open areas with either short grass or long grass near the ski hill.

I think the woods north of the road are conservation area and thus, no off trail for now.
