Located on the deep sand and silt deposits of the former Algonquin Lake Plain, this nature reserve protects one of the few remaining remnant patches of tallgrass prairie in Ontario. Currently much of the reserve is planted to Red Pine, but future plans include restoring the native prairie ecosystem. There are no visitor facilities provided. Parking is limited to the Cedar Street access point. Visitors are welcome to pursue day-use opportunities for hiking, cross-country skiing and nature appreciation, but are asked to respect the very sensitive tallgrass prairie ecosystem. Camping, motorized vehicles and off-road vehicles are not allowed in this nature reserve.
