Deer Lake Trail: 2.5 km (1-1.5 hours) with a shorter 1.5km loop, easy.
Take this self-guided trail to birdwatch, enjoy the sunset and see nature’s greatest engineer, the beaver, at work. The Deer Lake Trail provides ample opportunities for viewing birds and wetland wildlife as it winds through the boreal forest skirting the shores of Deer Lake and a beaver marsh. Located near the Deer Lake trailhead is a viewing platform which is great place to view a sunset, cast a line or just watch nature at its best.

Tiny Bog: 4.5 km (2-2.5 hours), moderate
The trail loops around two large beaver ponds and then climbs a sandy ridge of Jack Pines before arriving at the bog. A boardwalk crosses the bog where insect-eating plants such as Sundew and Pitcher Plant grow in a carpet of floating Sphagnum Moss. You’ll find a viewing platform at the bog and benches along the trail.

Clearwater Lake Trail: 2 km return, linear trail, easy
This trail leads through a pine forest to the spring-fed Clearwater Lake. Go for a swim, sit back and relax or explore this quiet lake by canoe.
