The park has
26km of hiking trails. The trails are suitable for novices, having
no real climbs along their route. You'll pass through mixed forest
and fields, as well as swampy areas in the centre of the park. In
the winter there are 5.5km of trails open to snow hikers. Dogs are
permitted on a leash, along 5.5km of the trail system. Inquire with
the park for details.
This is an excellent
park for cycling, the trails are wide and have hard packed surfaces
(hybrids are recommended) making for easy peddling. There are 7km
of the overall trail system open to cyclists.
Cross Country Skiing
The park has
32km of trails, with loops through out the park and a number of
interconnections, so you don't have to retrace you tracks. The trails
are suitable for novices and beyond.
You can launch
a canoe or kayak from beside the beach or the boat launch beside
the park's office. There are a number of bays, particularly on the
parks west side (beach launch) to offer some protection (but not
from those west winds) and provide a little more interest. When
the wind is up a sea kayak will serve you far better than an canoe.
The park is
good area for nature observation, with many nesting bird species.
The park has a pamphlet, which lists the parks birds, pick one up
at the office. The shoreline and the swamp areas are your best bets
for spotting a variety of our avian friends. Muskrats are often
seen on the parks shorelines and keep a look out for the long nose
gar, along with a variety of turtles.
