When a major forest fire in 1922 destroyed most of the surrounding area, little other than a cedar tree remained. The now 150 year old tree lends its name to the trail.
For the most part it skirts the Englehart River, at one point leading to a beaver lodge and presenting a scenic view. In addition, a major benefit of the park is the absence of the pesky black fly, something rare in this region.
The Englehart River plunges down whitewater rapids, over a waterfall (Kap-Kig-Iwan in Ojibway), past rugged rock outcrops, through deep ravines and by flats of colourful wildflowers in this picturesque park near Englehart.
Hiking, birdwatching and spring fishing are excellent.
