Trail Features

  • Amazing geology – From this trail you can see a distinct bluff overlooking the Rouge River with sandy brown rock layers deposited 13,000 to 30,000 years ago. This provincially-significant geological feature tells a story of thousands of years of climatic cooling and warming with sedimentary rocks accumulating, shifting, and eroding to eventually create this striking and well-known landscape feature.
  • Fall colours – Enjoy panoramic views of the Little Rouge Creek and Rouge River throughout the year. In the fall, burnt orange, red, and yellow colours bespeckle the landscape, offering awe-inspiring photo opportunities.
