This 141 hectare forest is owned by Saugeen Conservation and is a very popular spot year-round.

There is a 4.6 km trail system present on the property.

This property is part of the Singhampton Moraine. The area is characterized by irregular, stoney knobs and ridges of glacial till, kame deposits and kettle shaped wetlands interspersed with small, relatively level deposits of sand, soil and organic materials in the valley and basin floors. See property map here.

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.

The property is located 10km east of Chesley on Grey County Road 25. Go north ½ km on Sullivan Township Concession 5.

Please note: Parking is available off of Sideroad 6.
