Wabashkiki Trail (Samuel de Champlain PP)



The Wabashkiki Trail at Samuel de Champlain Provincial Park takes you over a wetland via a raised boardwalk onto a small island between Moore Lake and the Amable du Fond River. This wetland offers some of the best areas to view wildlife within the park. The trail takes its name from the Ojibway language meaning ‘swamp’ or ‘wetland’.
