Enniskillen Conservation


A quiet walk with plenty of nature to view through a mixed and wet cedar forest. Host to two life filled ponds and on a sunny day turtles may be seen sun bathing.

Cedar swamp, open wetlands and bubbling brooks – everything you would expect to find on the south slopes of the provincially significant Oak Ridges Moraine. The 65-hectare Enniskillen Conservation Area is located only a stone’s throw away from the small village of Enniskillen and offers a small network of trails through beautiful coniferous forest. The 3 km trail network includes numerous sections of boardwalk that cross an upper portion of the Bowmanville Creek five times.

By combining a hike with a nice picnic with family and friends at one of the group picnicking areas, Enniskillen Conservation Area can make for a great day out.

The area is known for its local history including the Moorey Grist Mill (built just north of the Education Centre in 1874 and dismantled in 1956) that used to take advantage of the constant supply of water that continues to run through the property today. Although the mill no longer exists, you can still see the earthen dam, which held back the creek water to produce the millpond.
