Aspen Trail – 2km, moderate
The Aspen Trail will introduce you to stands of boreal forest consisting of aspen, birch, Jack Pine, Balsam Fir and spruce trees. Walk through the remnants of the terrific wind storm of 1973 and over bare rock surfaces scarred by glaciers which melted 10 to 15 thousand years ago! Look for signs of White-tailed Deer, such as browsed branches, tracks and pellets. All the while you will be entertained by Aaron’s 26 species of warblers, as well as other boreal songbirds.

Eastern White Cedar Trail – 1.2 km loop, easy
A stroll down this trail will help you appreciate the history and ecology of Aaron. You will walk through large, historic stands of trees, hike along the shores and wetlands of Thunder Lake and climb up a slope to a clay plain. See how many species of amphibians, mammals, birds, trees, flowers, lichens, and mosses you can spot along the way.
