Super Carolinian forest on the Norfolk sand plain . Many interesting species that have been saved by the Weston Families efforts . There is a huge patch of Pokeweed in one clearing . The fruit look like grapes but very poisonous ,so watch the kids . There are many trails in this forest and you can get lost for a whole day . Yes ticks for sure . We wear proper combats with built in gaiters but if you are thinking shorts , forget it . This area was the first endemic Lyme disease area in Ontario/Canada . We were chased down the road by some local yockal once . He is lucky he didn't catch up with us . Got chased on a trail in Tillsonburg too . That guy took a swing at me , he's lucky I'm a nice guy ! Must something in the water in this area . If you can avoid the nuts this area is beautiful to the extreme ! K !
