The Den of Spines - named after the resident porcupines, this is the first new trail in the Agreement Forest inventory in years. This trail will flow on the bike but it is sure to become a favourite of all forest users.

Looping through a former homestead, this area is home to several active porcupine dens. Be on the lookout for signs of porcus spina, like bark scraped from trees.

Dog walkers and hikers are sure to be attracted to the lookout at the lake.

This trail has two or three short but tough climbs. The overall rating is moderate.

 Thanks T. Good to hear people are enjoying it, over 400 hours of volunteer work went into its creation.
