Above the upper Tannery Loop crossing of Tannery Alpine exists the remains of Swanson's Sawmill, built during the 1920s. The foundation housed a steam boiler for the mill's operation. The Straight Brook and its feeder streams were dammed, providing the water supply for the boiler. Tannin, a chemical extracted from the bark of hemlock trees, was used in the tanning of leather for many years.

Partridge Cut-Off - short and gentle, an excellent trail for first timers or those looking for a brief outing. (.5 km)
