Riverside Trail-Orillia


Mara Provincial Park

Mara's only trail winds through a soft-maple wetland and along the bank of a stream rich in flora and fauna. Watch for jack-in-the-pulpits, painted turtles sunning on logs and great blue herons standing like statues by the water.

For over 4,000 years, natives built weirs to harvest fish teeming in the narrows here between lakes Couchiching and Simcoe. Perch still spawn here and anglers also come for bass, muskie and trout. The main attraction of this little park near Orillia is the wide, sandy beach, one of Lake Simcoe's best.
