Paleozoic limestone outcroppings rub shoulders with much older,
Precambrian bedrock on this island, which is accessible by foot
from the Lovesick Lock. During the late
Wisconsinan-era, glaciers carved crescent-shaped gouges and striations
in the bedrock here. The island is blanketed by a variety of vegetation,
including swamp forest and thickets, mixed and deciduous forest,
and open rockland forest of scattered trees and shrubs.
Park Facilities and Activities
Hiking trails are the only visitor facility. For safety reasons,
swimming is prohibited near the locks and dams of the nearby Trent-Severn
