This trail is named in honour of Ed Foote who was Park Supervisor from 1970 to 1982, who drowned while retrieving a boat from the Agawa River. The trail follows a glacial river terrace to a level 50ft/15.2m above the tracks. The trail is lush with ferns and flowering plants growing among the greyish-pink boulders which comprise the talus (rock debris) slopes.
Interpretive panels along the trail will tell you more about the flora and fauna of the Great Lakes-St. Lawerence Forest region. The trails in the Park have been developed to provide access to the most scenic spots and to provide a wide range of walking/hiking opportunities. The trails are well maintained and are covered in a fine gravel called crusher fines. Please be gentle with all living things in the park. The balance of nature can be easily and unknowingly upset through picking or damaging plants and trees.
Please refrain from smoking on trails. Park staff roam the trails during the tour and you will usually find them stationed at the Lookout, Bridal Veil and Otter Creek falls, should you require assistance.
