Ouimet Canyon provides great opportunities for bird watching, as sections of the raised boardwalk trail get you closer to the forest canopy to see and hear neotropical migrants (birds that breed in North America and spend winters in Central and South America), as well as year round residents of the boreal forest. You many also get a glimpse of the threatened Peregrine Falcon, which occasionally nests on the cliffs of the canyon.
Ouimet Canyon features a one kilometre loop trail to two viewing platforms along the canyon’s rim. Please stay on the trail and view the canyon only from the designated lookout points. One route/direction along this trail allows for barrier-free access to the lookouts.
