Blueberry Trail


Blueberry Trail leads up the side of an escarpment and along its edge, through a beautiful and rare pure red pine forest. The trail is steep and difficult in spots, and flat and open in other places.

Although it may seem like young forest, it has never been logged. This forest regenerated after a hot fire roughly 120 years ago. At this age we consider this a young old-growth forest.



Don’t let size fool you either - at the end of the trail you’ll find a sign marking a tree that is 100 years old but only 8 inches in diameter. On the dry, thin soil, trees grow very slowly.

Surprisingly, despite the small size of many of these trees, this red pine forest is currently threatened with logging. It’s one sign of the uncertain future of our industrial logging practices, which are consuming tomorrow’s future today.
