Woodlot Trail – Rock Point


This trail travels through a variety of different environments within the park, along the top of a lakeside bluff, through old field and into a Carolinian Woodlot. Stairs lead down the side of the bluff to the beach or limestone shelf with many fossils.

Viewing platforms overlook Lake Erie and nearby Mohawk Island and lighthouse. Judging by exposed fossils embedded in limestone shelves along the beach, this peninsula was a coral reef 350 million years ago. A platform above the sand dunes offers the best view of Lake Erie, migrating birds and monarch butterflies.

Now the Carolinian forests here are home to opossum, Canada's only marsupial.
