"The entire (Baird) trail (in Lanark, Ont, near Herron's Mills) now covers about three kilometres, with interpretive panels along the path to point out different types of trees and natural landmarks. History of the property
A pioneer family first settled on the property in 1837, with basic food crops and livestock in the fields and a forest that provided lumber, fuel and maple syrup. The sandy soil was not ideal for agricultural, and the lowlands flooded due to beaver dams.
The land was left idle in the 1920s. In 1963, Margaret Baird sold the 36-hectare parcel to the county, which planted a red-pine planation as part of a conservation program.
To reach the trail, take Hwy. 511 north to Herron Mills Road and turn right. The trail entrance is on the left at 2410 Herron Mills Road. The spot has a parking lot, a picnic area and pit toilets at the entrance to the trail." (CMcF2012)
