Petawawa Research Forest Trail
Petawawa Research Forest, established in 1917, is a 100 sq km tract of forested land. This public resource has been an area for research studies and demonstrations, as well as logging activities. The forest lies on the edge of the vast Canadian Shield and within the Great Lakes - St. Lawrence forest region.
The terrain is covered with mixed forest. The prime forest species are white pine and aspen, followed by red oak, red pine, white birch, maple and white spruce. In 1998, the Petawawa Research Forest established an interpretive bike trail to allow access to some of the trails in the forest. This interpretive trail is well marked with red bike signs.
Along the way, stop at the large green “Forest Description” signs that describe some of the research activities currently underway at the Petawawa Research Forest Information provided by the Valley Explore website.
