Beaver Meadow Discovery Trail – 2.4 km into the boreal forest (Easy)
Here you can discover how the industrious beaver has altered the landscape while you take in various wildflowers, birds and wildlife. On the side trail you will find a Pond with an active beaver lodge, home to Wakami’s two resident beavers.

Transitional Forest Trail – 2.5 km with optional 5 km loop through a transitional forest (Moderate)
This trail takes you through a forest with a split personality. Here the Red Pine, White Pine, Sugar Maple and Yellow Birch are near the northern limit of their range. They are the common species of the Great Lakes, but here in and around Wakami Lake, there is a transition into the boreal forest where trees such as Black Spruce, Balsam Fir and Jack Pine become the dominant species.

Hidden Bog Trail – take a leisurely stroll into an ecologically fragile area.
Here you can discover strange plants like the pitcher plant and sundew which are scattered across the forest floor leading to a quaking bog. A bog can be a tough place to survive, and some plants add insects to their diet to make ends meet. Please remain on the trail so as not to disturb this fragile community.

Historical Logging Exhibit – 1 km self-guided trail. (Easy) Under Refurbishment Access limited
Here you can discover the history of logging in the Wakami area from the 1920s to the 1940s, when horses were slowly being replaced by machines. This is demonstrated with restored logging equipment; various log buildings on display and a variety of interpretive panels along the route.
