Striking contrast
This sandy looped trail will guide you through a site affected by the Rabbit creek Forest Fire in 2018. This dark scenery of burnt trees can feel gloomy. Don’t be fooled, post-fire forests are vibrant and very much alive. Visit in the spring to discover carpets of wildflowers, soaking in the sun through the newly open canopy.

The great range of vision offered by this contrasting landscape is ideal for birdwatching. Listen to songbirds or watch for waterfowl by the beaver ponds and small lakes.
