Educational Nature Hiking Trails
Enjoy hiking through the diverse ecosystems of Gordon’s Park, in the heart of a hardwood forest. Observe and listen to the beauty of nature around the pond, up the escarpment, in the swamp, and throughout the meadows. Check out our natural butterfly habitat, and the turtles and goldfish in the pond. Study the wildflowers of each season, and the mushrooms, fossils, and geology around the escarpment. See the beech tree that was a winner in the Great Manitoulin Tree Hunt, our Baden Powell Grove, and our RASC designated Dark Sky Preserve. Watch for wildlife viewing opportunities – local species include various song birds, hawks, partridges, deer, porcupines, foxes, and wolves.
