Access – Unfortunately Coulson is right beside a bridge over the highway that does not have exit ramps.
From Hwy 400 northbound, exit on Hwy 88 and head east towards Bradford, then go north on 10th Sideroad, then west on 11th Line (Concession Rd. 11). There is a parking lot on the north side before the highway bridge.
The parklot has recently been shifted east. Any of the trails in from the car lot will make a good starting place for beginners.
Hunting is allowed when in season, so wear bright colours, makes some noise.
