Oak Highland Trail


This trail climbs steeply to a lookout with a panoramic view of the Ottawa River. Mosses and lichens survive on the exposed bedrock, and red oak and blueberries grow in thin soils. The Riverside Loop (Loop 1) has a lookout, Station 1, on a rocky outcrop of grey and pink gneiss with white quartz crystals. On the Beaver Pond Loop (Loop 2) at Station 2, is an active beaver dam and lodge where if approached quietly.



Visit seven interpretive stations in all, Stations 6 and 7 are on a short spur trial. There are many interlocking trail loops from 1 km to 3.7 km long, in a forested location, skirting a bay with sandy beaches on the Ottawa River. Lookouts from high points or at the river’s edge afford picturesque views across to the Laurentian Hills and to the mouth of the Dumoine River in Quebec.
