The Peacock Tract was purchased by the County of Wellington in 1946 from Anna Gray. The former Peacock School was located here and is the source of the tract name. The trail winds through second growth forest and rolling terrain. Remains of the foundations of former structures are visible along the trail. There is a nice upland forest stand around the loop at the trail’s end. The forest is part of “Brisbane Woods” an Environmentally Sensitive Area (ESA) and a Regional Area of Natural and Scientific Interest (ANSI).
