Geology Challenge

Picture a giant bulldozer inching its way southward from the Canadian Shield carrying with it mountains of loose rock, sand and cobble locked up in its icy grip.

Every square inch of the park has been influenced by the dynamic interactions of water and this glacial material which has been molded by wave action and shaped by the wind to create the landscape we know as Awenda today.

The map provided will direct you to a series of 10 posts along the Park’s four beaches each with a QR Code which tells part of Awenda’s recent geological history.

Use your smartphone or tablet to scan the code using a QR code scanner (free to download from any app store) and access the information.

The self-guided hike stops can stand alone or be completed together. The total distance is 4km which will take approximately 2 hours to complete.

Let’s Get Started!
Drive down to the beach and park in the first available parking lot. Take one of the trails down to 1st Beach. When you reach 1st Beach walk to the far eastern end of the shoreline and then scan the QR code for Stop #1.

If you need help with directions use the map on the back of the brochure or scan the map QR code for an interactive Google map.

Bonus: What fun time would be complete without a little music? Can you count how many classic ROCK and ROLL musical acts are referred to throughout the hike?
