Trail Description:

Caution: this trail follows the shore of a fast moving river with rocky slopes to the rivers edge. Parents must keep small children close at all times. From the monument, travel west along the trail to the left of the road you arrived on. At times the trail will follow the road itself as it comes quite close to the river. Trail length is about 1 km or 1250 steps one way. Return the same way or follow the road back to the monument. This is one of the most beautiful spots in Muskoka, so relax and enjoy. Picnic facilities are available.

This rugged terrain highlights natural grown forest, has a steep incline and a steep descent, and is meant for a good nature walk. Its untouched perimeters lean the way to wildlife, birds, butterflies and nature. Share in the splendor of making the markers, and be sure to look up.
