The George Island trail passes through bush, wetland, and rocky areas until it reaches a stony beach. There is also a spot along this trail where commercial fishermen used to tar their nets to delay their deterioration. Although the practice of tarring nets ended decades ago, the vats remain there today.

The trail also passes by six beaver ponds and allows for close viewing of their dams and lodges. Moreover, these beaver ponds provide habitat for many duck species such as wood, hooded merganser, mallard, blue winged teal, and black and for many amphibians and reptiles.
The George island hiking trail provides a great opportunity to view many varieties of wild flowers and herbs. In the forested areas, star flower, may flower, bunch berry, blue bead lily and wintergreen predominate. In rocky areas, species such as low-bush blueberry, pale corydalis and harebell are common.
