This trail leads through parts of the St. Croix Heritage River System, which was shaped by the last ice age about Lookout on Spednic Lake fifteen thousand years ago. This area was populated by various native peoples as early as eleven thousand years ago, as the 1983 excavation at the Diggity site on the opposite shore revealed. The lookout at a swamp along the trail is a peaceful place where wildlife can be observed. Spednic Lake’s remarkable glacial boulders and the cool breeze off its waters add to the attraction of this trail. Discovery at Diggity Site Carved out of the forest, along a sandy beach, lies a small grassy picnic site with a rock structure at its centre. This peaceful sight across the shore from the Boulderwalk Trail at the banks of Spednic Lake once was bustling with activity. Trail Condition: dry, rocky, and rooty.
