Welsh Tract - Forest of the Secret Pond


This is a class one old growth forest with a fascinating mix of trees and rolling hills. The jewel in its crown is a beautiful secluded pond hidden amongst a cedar grove and sumacs. In the winter you will find a lot of deer and other small animal tracks.

Fifty-thousand jack pine, red pine, white spruce, Japanese larch, and Carolina poplar were planted here in the 1950s. The forest is managed by the County and a thinning operation is planned for 2008-2009.

Also, note that hunting is allowed in the traditional hunting seasons. Directions:County Road 27 south of Cookstown, to 12th line of Bradford - West Gwillimbury. Head east on the 12th Line until you come to the Welsh Tract on the North side of the road.
