For the nature lover, the 4.6 km of established trails are an interesting feature to the area. The trail system branches off into various lengths each offering uniquely different experiences and habitats. Some spots along the way are wet enough to warrant rubber boots. If one keeps a keen eye, a variety of wildlife in their natural habitat may be observed.

We ask that you take only pictures and leave only footprints. Please remember that you are visiting a wildlife sanctuary – the home to the birds and wildlife that you see.

Please stay on the marked trails to ensure that plants are not trampled and that you are walking on safe ground.

The trails are open year-round.

Sulphur Springs Trail meanders along the southern edge of a wetland area and the main stream that feeds the waterways of this park. The acidic environment in this area plays host to unusual plants which have adapted to the specialized conditions. The trail takes approximately 20-25 minutes to walk.

Corduroy Road Trail takes approximately 10-15 minutes to walk.

This trail features a stretch of boardwalk that winds through a fen which is acidic in nature. The growth of the larch and cedar trees in this area have been stunted by the excessive moisture around their roots and the nitrogen poor soils. Unique bog flowers such as orchids, grass of Parnassus and insect eating pitcher plants thrive on this type of soil.

Rabbit Road takes about 30 minutes to walk.

The old cedar stumps on this trail not only offer superb hiding and hibernating locations, but supply the necessary nutrients for yellow birch seeds to start their growth cycle. As the stumps decompose, the roots of the yellow birch must reach solid ground to stabilize their footing. Many “perched” birches can be seen along this trail

Hardwoods Highlands Trail takes roughly 30-45 minutes to walk. This trail offers you the opportunity to study various tree species and appreciate the limitless contributions of our forests. Carpets of wildflowers cover the forest floor in the spring along this beautiful trail.
