Description & Services

Information From Paquette Lake, follow an old fire access trail across windswept barrens, over hills and through stands of softwood trees. Then follow a short side trail to the top of Glasgow Lakes Hill where you can see for miles! This is a great trail to give you a feel for the "highlands plateau". This flat area at the top of the park has vegetation similar to the northern Taiga with stunted trees, huckleberries and bracken ferns. The panoramic view of the open barrens and the ocean are unique.
