Park staff successfully reintroduced beaver into the park in the 1940s, after trappers completely eliminated them from the area by the mid 1800s. This trail is characterized by evidence of beaver activity near the trailhead. Lodges that are overgrown with vegetation are now abandoned. The open aspen forest and sedge meadows along this trail are ideal for bird watching in summer and observing large mammals grazing in winter.

Bison were nearly lost from North America! By the early 20th century, bison purchased from Montana and brought to the Elk Island National Park began to slowly rebuild their numbers. Today nearly every plains bison you see in southern Canada, whether in conservation or domestic herds, had an ancestor in Elk Island National Park! We think that's something to celebrate! Join us for this sensory festival celebrating all things bison, from conservation, to culture, to cuisine!
