The Ritch Tract was acquired by the County of Wellington from Robert Ritch, County Warden, in 1942. The Ritch Tract area is an Environmentally Sensitive Area. A side trail to the left will take you out of the forest to a municipal drain. If you follow it to the right, it will take you to extensive wetlands and some beaver ponds.
