The Enchanting Forest – Peter’s Woods Provincial Park
June 15 @ 12:30 PM - 4:00 PM
Saturday, June 15, 2019
12:30 p.m., Crawford Drive at Harper Road commuter parking lot
Join Carling Dewar of Ancient Forests Exploration & Research and Sue Paradisis as we fall under the spell of this remnant old growth forest. The province’s oldest known Sugar Maple (460 years) and White Oak (450 years) are in this small forest with White Pines a metre wide. Carpeted with ferns and wildflowers, it is typical of what settlers would have found on the Oak Ridges Moraine a few centuries ago. The trail is only .9 kilometres but descends into a gully and back up. Bring binoculars, a camera and change for gas if carpooling. If you wish, meet us at the park on McDonald Rd County Rd 23 north of Centreton or south of County Rd. 29. at 1:15.
Accessibility: Easy to moderate
