The Benham Tract was purchased by the County of Wellington in 1952 from Malcom Wishart. The tract was named after the former reeve of Eramosa Township, Earnest Benham. This tract is located on a rehabilitated gravel pit. The topography is rolling with several side trails. The terrain is challenging, but the scenery is well worth the effort. The Provincially Significant Speed River wetland complex crosses through the eastern half of the property. A winter deer yard is also present. You can see the rehabilitated gravel pit from the parking lot.
