2 Red Pine Plantation Thinning Closures

To assist in an initiative to restore the ecological integrity within Red Pine plantations in Algonquin Provincial Park:
- The Cache Lake Access Point and Cache Lake Historic Site will be closed starting Tuesday April 6, 2021 until approximately the end of April.
The purpose of this project is to encourage natural regeneration for a future natural succession forest. After thinning, tree health/vigor and wind firmness will improve creating a healthier forest and a diverse habitat for wildlife.

These areas will be closed for public safety.


3 Access Point roads, such as Barron Canyon Road, Opeongo Road and Rock Lake Road are not yet maintained and may be in poor condition at this time.
Use at your own risk and please drive with caution.
