is an offshoot of Hardwood Hills, adding length, or offering its own unique trail. Travelling beside a series of beaver dams it leads to the Oxtongue River, and provides the opportunity to see how beavers change the landscape. Beaver ponds, whether active or in the process of turning back into beaver meadows, are critical habitat for many species. Otters, herons, many bird species and dragonflies can be found along this walk. Wolf sign is also frequently present as well. A note of caution – river ice is NEVER safe. If you are there in winter, stay off the ice.
