This was a very popular self-guided trail in the past. There were beavers on this trail for about 10 years (1975 to 1985), after which they left because of a shortage of food. Have you ever wondered what happens in a forest after the beavers have left? Keep a look out for signs of beavers returning. The interpretive panels describe the beaver, its habits and its impact of the forest.
In season, orchids can be seen along the trail. The diversity of the trees and shrubs also attracts a wide variety of birds, both during the day and evening.
