Moon Island Trail

This is a 4 kilometre trail of moderate difficulty that can be accessed from the Wood’s Bay Day-Use site. The trail traverses various terrain and forest types, with impressive lookouts onto Georgian Bay.

It provides excellent opportunities to view waterfowl, a heron rookery and beaver pond. Along the trail you can see signs of wildlife including moose, deer, bear, and grouse. Stretching along the coast of Georgian Bay from Parry Sound to the Moon River, this park takes in hundreds of windswept islands as well as inland forests and lakes. Accessible only by water, it is a protected sanctuary for the Massasauga rattlesnake and home to prairie warblers, five-line skink, hybrid toads and map turtles.

Moor in a quiet cove, fish for muskie and bass, camp by the bay or paddle to inland lake sites. Be sure to visit Calhoun Lodge for a glimpse of 1930s cottage life.
