Whiskey Rapids Trail


This looped trail leads along the Oxtongue River to scenic Whiskey Rapids. The trail guide discusses the ecology and history of an Algonquin river. Algonquin Provincial Park covers a transition zone between southern deciduous forests and northern coniferous forests. The result is that both forest types are found within Park boundaries. On even a short trip in the Park's you can see maple forest, spruce bogs, road edges, beaver ponds, campgrounds, lakes, and cliffs. Algonquin's diverse habitat protects and nurtures incredibly diverse plant and animal life.

The park is home to 53 species of mammals, 272 species of birds, 31 species of reptiles and amphibians, 54 species of fish, and approximately 7000 species of insects, plus over 1000 species of plants and another 1000 species of fungi. The park is the locale for extensive scientific research over the years by both biologists and ecologists. "Ground Zero" for the research is the Wildlife Research Station located along the Highway 60 corridor.
