Map #27 – Beaver Pond
The Bruce Trail has been rerouted away from a perennially wet area created by beavers. While slightly longer, the reroute brings hikers to a huge wetland just upstream from a newly extended bridge. This wetland area is a birder's paradise located on the high ground providing a watershed for the Beaver River and Bighead River. From each end of this huge wetland, streams drain into the Bighead River and Beaver River eventually finding their ways into Nottawasaga Bay at Meaford and Thornbury.
