Named after an unfortunate workhorse who drowned while skidding logs over the pond's thin ice, this trail leads to a spectacular lookout. Along the way, you may see beech trees scarred by the claws of black bears climbing for nuts.
Look for signs of natural disturbances such as blackened pine stumps burnt in a forest fire, insect outbreaks and wind damage. In winter, this trail is a snowshoeing favourite. Information provided by the Ontario Parks website.
Feedback - for wheelchair folks. We loved our trip to Bonnie's Pond Trail & Silent Lake.
I wouldn't think of this trail as a partial wheelchair accessible trail as listed by ON parks - only the road leading to the trail is accessible, also washrooms are found only at the trail head.
