This interpretive trail explores mans impact on the land over the last 150 years. The trail passes through logging sites, old farm fields and reforestation plantations.
The highlight of this trail is a quite moment overlooking a pond filled with wildlife. Located in the picturesque Kawarthas, Balsam Lake is an all-season recreational park along the Trent-Severn Waterway.
In summer, swim at a clean, safe beach, hike to a lookout tower, fish for bass, sail and windsurf.
