Wolf Island

What You'll Like :

Paleozoic limestone outcroppings rub shoulders with much older, Precambrian bedrock on this island, which is accessible by foot from the Lovesick Lock. There is no road access. 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 Waterway.

Location: An island in Lower Buckhorn Lake, some 35 km north of Peterborough via Highway 28.
