Along this natural garden trail through the forest to a small lake you will find an interpretation of the forest, genealogical connections, Canadian history and simple beauty. The lake has a resident beaver, the symbol of the fur trade.

Several rest areas are located along the way. There is a natural view point overlooking the lake. In the evening you can watch the Canada Geese, Swans and Ducks land on the lake. Spend an afternoon or a day enjoying Canada's last frontier.
