Beetle Lake Trail

This is a 5 km hike through an active beaver pond, bog, hardwood hills and primary growth forest to a stunning lookout of Oxtongue Lake. Because of the varied and open forest types, this area provides one of the best opportunities in the Highlands for spotting many of Central Ontario’s best known bird and wildlife species such as Moose, Deer, Otter, Beaver, Snowshoe Hare, Red-tailed Hawk, Barred Owl and Ruffed Grouse, just to name a few!
