What We Do
The Friends of Mashkinonje are a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to:
- Environmental protection and preservation of the Park and its' trails.
- Education about the Park's natural, scientific, historic, and cultural resources, and the responsible recreational use of the land.
Mashkinonje Provincial Park stretches from the West Bay to the West Arm of Lake Nipissing. The Park is home to several ecologically-significant areas, including the Loudon Peatlands.
Today, Mashkinonje has about 35 km of hiking trails that cross bedrock outcrops to the peatlands, beaver ponds, and the scenic West Arm of Lake Nipissing. The Park also includes a 5 km paddle that leads directly into Lake Nipissing via Muskrat Creek.
