Loudon Peatland Trail


Mashkinonje Provincial Park    

The beginnings of this trail and the boardwalk will soon be accessible by wheelchair - perfect for viewing wildlife around the marsh. The trail proceeds to explore a variety of wetland types including the provincially significant Loudon Peatland with its fen border and central bog.



Mashkinonje Provincial Park consists of a diverse system of wetlands supporting all the major wetland types; marshes, bogs, swamps, fens and ponds; interspersed with undulating granite ridges that cover over 2000 hectares along the West Arm of Lake Nipissing. The park counts among its many wetlands two provincially significant areas the Loudon Basin Peatlands and the Muskrat Creek complexes.



Directions: From the HWY 11/17 junction near Seymour Street, take HWY 17 northwest for 44 km. Turn left at Lavac Road, left again at Beaudry Road, and right at LeClair Road for 6 km. Turn left onto HWY 64, and travel for 25 km until Mashkinonje Provincial Park appears on your right.
