Massasauga Trail


The trail gets its name from the endangered Massasauga Rattlesnake which along with other reptiles and amphibians take shelter in this area. The park sits on the border of the Canadian Shield and the transition is readily apparent in many areas.

The intersection of the two distinct regions allows for a variety of wildlife to flourish. The venomous but shy Massausauga Rattlesnake may be found on the island. A protected species, give it a wide berth if you encounter one and notify the park as to where you sighted it. Watch for a variety of bird species as well as numerous orchids in the park.
