28 May 2021: A portion of Black Walnut trail is no longer passable and will be temporarily closed due to a collapsed bridge. The area is in the central portion of the park between Scarlet Tanager and Terrace creek trail heads. Please adjust your plans on the day of your visit. The closure will remain in place until the repairs can be made.
Short Hills Provincial Park will be closed to the public for a First Nation Deer Harvest on November 3 and 26, December 10 and 17, 2020 and January 7 and 27, 2021. Each harvest day will begin one half-hour before sunrise and end one half-hour after sunset.
The park will be closed the morning after each harvest for maintenance until noon.
Ontario respects Aboriginal and treaty rights, as recognized and affirmed under the Constitution Act, 1982, and is committed to meeting the province’s constitutional and other obligations regarding First Nation and Métis people.
First Nation harvesters will use archery equipment and follow safety protocols.
