The Angel's Point Trails is just outside of Restoule and straddles the narrows between two lakes south of Lake Nipissing. Hike or mountain-bike to high granite bluffs and a fire tower where you can see for miles. Watch for heron rookeries, birds of prey and white-tailed deer. Embark from here on a five-day canoe trip tracing Samuel de Champlain's original route.
Towering bluffs of granite and bedrock and dark, glassy lakes fringed with red pines characterize the spectacular scenery at Restoule. Blanketing the forest floor and lining the paths and trails are delicate plants such as Wild Cucumber with its blond and wine-coloured blossoms, or Hobblebush with dramatic sprays of snow-white blooms in May.
Hemlock thrives in the park's swampy areas - a favoured habitat for the white-tailed deer. Wildlife viewing is excellent with a healthy coyote, wolf, bear, otter, pine marten, moose and deer population. To the northeast, the park abuts one of the largest white-tailed deer herds in Ontario and many wander into Restoule for the food and shelter provided by hemlock trees.
More than 90 species of birds, including the rare and endangered Peregrine falcon, inhabit the park. Highlights include a heron rookery, waterfowl nesting areas and a large variety of birds of prey.
