Significant Features

This reserve is just outside the boundaries of the Niagara Escarpment Plan. It is located south of Heathcote, just outside a residential area. This reserve is on the Beaver River which starts just north of Singhampton and flows through Eugenia Lake where it enters the Niagara Escarpment Region. It ends off at Mill Pond in Thornbury where it leads to Georgian Bay.
