Grundy Lake Provincial Park | Great Lakes Guide

Grundy Lake Provincial park is a unique place to journey through Ontario’s forests. In the Park, you can travel through the characteristic northern boreal forests that meet the deciduous and mixed forests of southern Ontario. Canoe and swim in the many lakes, and hike along its trails, all the while seeing the many facets of the park’s ecology and glacially-shaped landscape. While exploring, you will see carved granite, spotted with bogs, ponds, lakes, and mixed forest. The Canadian Shield and rocky lake shorelines are a high-point for each hiking trail and are definitely worth the visit! The area is also home to Provincially significant species, such as the Blanding’s Turtle, Golden-winged Warbler, Least Bittern, the Grass Pink Orchid and the rare Arethusa Orchid (also known as Dragon’s Mouth Orchid). The boardwalks winding through the wetlands allow you to get close-up views of some carnivorous plant life in the park. Along with the Parks’ special natural vistas, it is an important place to learn about the history of the French River area. This is an area where the Voyageurs and the fur trade existed, early in Canada’s history. You can also enjoy winter activities in this park. Please contact the park for more details.

It is the lake in which I learned to swim, paddle a canoe, enjoy picturesque sunsets, fall asleep and be wakened by the haunting call of the loon.
