Brent Crater Trail
City: BrentLength: 2.0 kmRegion: Muskoka, Parry Sound and Algonquin Park
This 2 km loop trail is situated in the northeast corner of Algonquin Park. It starts at an observation tower that overlooks the 4 km wide crater left by a meteor about 450 million years ago. The well-maintained footpath descends the eroded rim of the crater and makes it way to Tecumseh Lake and back up the crater edge. Numbered posts designate geological features of the meteorite’s explosive impact.
How to get there: 1 km NW of Deux Rivières, along Hwy 17, turn left onto the signposted Brent Road. This is an access road for Algonquin Park....
