The Smale Tract is a quiet oasis off a county road near Mount Forest. Although sadly neglected by trail users, with a little tender loving care, this could be a delightful walk on a summer afternoon.
Located on a 44-hectare (109-acre) forest property belonging to the County of Wellington, the main trail has seen occasional use by forestry crews, but side trails are becoming overgrown.
Some outdoors people make a habit of carrying a plastic bag and pick up some garbage when they visit these spots. Just a few visitors like that and the Smale Tract will become one of the county’s jewels. Home to white spruce, red pine, cedars and green ash, the overwhelming impression here is one of peace and quiet. Just what you enjoy in a walk.
