The Woodland Trail provides shorter and longer walking options set against a backdrop of forests, meadows and water. Watch for signs of beaver activity, including gnawed trees, fallen branches and dams along the Little Rouge Creek. Parks Canada guided walks for the Woodland Trail meet in the main parking lot.
Busy beavers – The Woodland Trail is well known for signs and sightings of Canada’s national animal.
River views – Follow the trail along the Rouge River. A mix of forest and meadow views offer a variety of plant and animal life.
Cultural heritage – Look for remnants of an active and vibrant cottage and camping area, which was flooded by Hurricane Hazel in 1954.

Pets are welcome in the park, but we want them, and park wildlife to be safe. Our domestic animals can be exposed to dangers from wildlife and the elements just like we can, and they may also pose a danger to the park’s protected wildlife, farmland and cultural heritage. For the safety of your pet and to help protect the park, please observe the following rules:
Leash up – For the safety of your pet and others, all pets must be under physical control whenever you are visiting the park.
Stoop and scoop – Pet waste can have adverse effects on park wildlife, farmland and cultural heritage. Please clean up after your pet and dispose of waste in proper garbage receptacles.
Be mindful – We want everyone to feel safe and respected while they visit Rouge National Urban Park. Other visitors and local wildlife may not feel comfortable around your pet. Please keep your domestic animals away from other visitors and wildlife you may encounter in the park.
Entry is free.
