Bobcaygeon Wilderness Park provides over eight acres of safe, accessible trails for walking, hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing through a beautiful mature forest. The park also provides a unique educational opportunity to visitors.

A large pollinator patch showcases hundreds of native plants and highlights the importance of pollinators, especially bees to our ecosystems.

Interpretive signs provide another educational component, explaining the significance of many of the natural features found within the park and along the trails.  Each of the interpretive signs has a QR code on it so if walking with your phone you can get even more information.

The total length of all trails is 1km. It is a small property right now so the attempt was to make the experience educational.

The Pollinator Patch Trail was built to provincial handicap standards with a limestone screenings surface and gentle grades.
