Rose Hill Nature Reserve
Biodiversity at its best
It is found in a remote area with four small ponds, wetlands and several creeks. It is at a high elevation for eastern Ontario and is dominated by several long, steep ridges with rock outcrops and glacial erratics common on the domed hills and slopes. The property is blanketed by a diverse suite of 22 ecological communities ranging from high rock barrens to low marshes and ponds, but most of it is covered by upland deciduous (sugar maple, sugar maple-oak-hickory) and coniferous (hemlock, white spruce, white pine, balsam fir) forest.
Naturalists love this area for:
- Cross Country skiing
- Picnic area
- 3.5 kilometre walking trail system within the reserve
- Here you’ll find one of the most well developed Eastern Ontario stands of Hemlock. This type of tree that has been on a serious decline in parts of the United States and Ontario
- Some Hemlocks are very large and probably exceed 100 years of age
