Emily Provincial Park:
Emily Park is located Regional Road 10, just north of Omemee. The entrance to the trail is near
the south beach parking area. Walk along the elevated boardwalk over a cattail marsh to a
sphagnum moss island and a lookout tower to see the osprey nest. You can also swim at two
sandy beaches along Pigeon River, fish or go for a paddle.
Marsh Boardwalk Trail
The Marsh Boardwalk Trail begins on a bark-chipped surface and immediately you enter an
area of tall and mature cedar trees creating a dense tree canopy. Soon you arrive at the
boardwalk and begin walking through cattails and ferns on both sides of the boardwalk. The
cattails are so tall it is impossible to see over them, but it is possible to see wildlife such as
frogs, turtles, red-winged blackbirds and American bitterns. The boardwalk stops at a unique
island referred to as Sphagnum Island, which was created over thousands of years. The island
has lots of Balsam Fir trees and ground hemlock. The trail continues to circle around the island.
Soon you arrive at a lookout platform that allows you to scan the marsh, Pigeon River and
forest. If you look carefully, you will see a nest where for generations a pair of ospreys has
raised their young.
