The Bolton Resource Management Tract is one of several TRCA properties on the Oak Ridges Moraine in the Town of Caledon, Region of Peel. It is a tract of over 800 hectares of greenspace and includes TRCA owned and managed properties along the Humber River valley, south of Old Church Road, north of King Street and west of Highway 50. The Bolton Resource Management Tract includes Edelweiss Park, Dick's Dam Park and Bolton Mill Park. Forest management and restoration has been the focus for much of the land management in the resource management tract. Some portions provide the opportunity for passive, year-round public use. The primary public use of the Bolton tract is the Humber Valley Heritage Trail, a pedestrian-only trail. In addition, some agricultural land is leased.
