Enniskillen Conservation Area (65 hectares) has a cedar swamp, open wetlands and bubbling brooks—everything you would expect to find on the south slopes of the provincially significant Oak Ridges Moraine. It is located only a stone’s-throw away from the small village of Enniskillen and offers 5.5 km of trails through a beautiful mixed deciduous forest that includes the Bowmanville Creek and two ponds.

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.
