Barrens Extension - Torrance Barrens


Accessed from the main trail, this extended loop takes the visitor around another large fen and past a working beaver dam and house.

The lunar landscape of the Barrens is characterized by low ridges of Precambrian bedrock, separated by wetlands and peat-filled hollows, scattered boulders and even a little soil.

The prevalence of bare bedrock is the direct result of wave-washing by the receding waters of the glacial lakes Algonquin and Nipissing.
