Access to White Bear Forest Trails is either via O’Connor Drive in Temagami or by portage via Cassels Lake. This is an interconnected series of trails traveling through a number of small old-growth Pine stands. These trails feature easy to intermediate hikes and a refurbished fire tower and viewing platform.

The trails of the White Bear Forest offer hikers, canoeists and adventurers the opportunity to travel through a portion of Ontario’s forest that has changed little over time. The majority of the trails are located in an area that has never been logged or mined. The trails vary, from a leisurely one-hour hike, to all day or weekend trips. Many species of birds and wildlife can be observed in their natural surroundings.
