For a firsthand glimpse of native Ontario wildlife, be sure to visit Halfway Lake Provincial Park. While paddling along the Two Narrows Canoe Route, there are unique opportunities to view nesting Bald Eagles and a heron rookery. This route begins on Halfway lake and flows south into Bailey lake, where you will travel through a series of small islands covered with jack pine, white birch, and trembling aspen. Keep in mind that these sandy beaches provided important camping areas for the Ojibway Spanish River Band, many years ago. The hiking trail that winds north, through grassy wetlands and along the west shore of Echo Pond, is another idyllic place for wildlife viewing. The Echo Pond Trail is regularly visited by moose, and Canada’s mascot, the Beaver. Because the park is relatively free of roads, it covers a range of undamaged habitats that provide excellent homes for moose, beavers, wolves, lynx, foxes, and snowshoe hares. The natural trails cross through mossy clearings, forests, and along the cliff tops to the edge of Antrim Lake. When you reach the top of the Osprey Heights Trail, be sure to take some photos of the outstanding view from 50 metres above the lake. You can also enjoy winter activities in this park. Please contact the park for more details.
