Many springs, cool streams, swampy areas, and small ponds add to the natural beauty of this rolling landscape.

The 4.6 km trail is popular to a wide range of users.  This property is also adjacent to Ontario Nature’s Krug Forest, one of the few remaining old-growth forests in the area.  While you’re visiting this property, take in the Krug Forest next door!  They’re both a treat to visit.
