This Homestead ruin is located in the South March Highlands Conservation Forest. The exact history of this ruin is unknown. If anyone knows any historical information regarding this ruin, please let us know.
According to online research the ruin belongs to an old homestead that predates the 1900’s. Other ruins from the 1800’s are located in the surrounding area. This ruin remains intact due to the ongoing conservation efforts. We were surprised at the great condition of the stone foundation and at the number of artifacts left in the area by the original inhabitants.
The walk from Second Line road “Parking Lot” to the ruins is 3 kilometers one-way adding to a total hike of 6 kilometers. The terrain begins flat then becomes very hilly. The homestead ruin is worth the hike.
Note: Stay on the trail as much as possible as we had multiple ticks attached to our clothing.
Accessing this site from Huntmar Dr. via the railroad is shorter but will leave you walking through a swampy area and through extremely dense forest. We recommend parking on Second Line Rd.
