Pine Grove Nature Trail


The Red Pine trees, which are the namesake of this trail system, find their home below the northern shoulder of Powassan Mountain, found in the Powassan Mountain Conservation Area, managed by the North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority. Planted during the 1930s, under the guidance of George Ellesmere, the pines reclaim a burned-out waste of bald rock left behind by lumbermen and fire. Powassan Mountain itself rises steeply to the southeast.  The top of the mountain offers visitors a spectacular view of the surrounding highlands and an opportunity to observe the topography of the area.
