Description

This section of the Trans Canada Trail is located in the southwest corner of the Municipality of Callander.  The trail winds up and down through terrain that is characteristic of the region’s landscape.  Wildlife is abundant on this remote trail as it passes through numerous habitat types.  At the western reaches, the trail crosses through active farmlands where cattle might be spotted amongst the trees.

Muddy conditions should be expected in the early spring and during episodes of wet weather.  Secondary hiking trails have been developed around the wet areas offering an alternative to wet feet.

During the winter months, much of the trail is under the management of the South Shore/ Restoule Snowmobile Club and the OFSC.
