Ask anybody about Killarney Provincial Park and they’ll tell you about clear blue lakes, white hills, pink granite ridges, cranberries and lots of sugar maples–plus pine, cedar, oak, black cherry and the occasional American beech. There’s also an ecologically significant boggy area, which has a hiking trail straight through it. Wolves, bears, snowshoe hares, moose, muskrat, beavers, otters and bobcats all live in the region. The 48,500ha (119,795- acre) wilderness park also provides an ideal habitat for more than 100 species of birds, including warblers, thrushes, kingfishers, terns, falcons, gray jays, chickadees, loons and sandhill cranes. The area continues to attract a diverse group of nomadic travellers, especially on the famous 100km (62mi) trail that circles the La Cloche Mountains and takes backpackers at least a week to complete. The slightly less enthusiastic hiker hasn’t been left out though; the park also offers three smaller day hikes, one to Georgian Bay, one along the cranberry bog and a third along an important granite ridge. This trail guide includes Chikanishing Trail, Cranberry Bog Trail, Granite Ridge Trail, and La Cloche Silhouette Trail.

Great trail, places to swim and seclusion. The group of seven had it right.

Blair wasn't kidding, what a complete waste of money to download this information. DO NOT download trail guide, go to the killarney website instead.

where are the actual maps? your site doesn't contain one map of a listed park that I'd like to use? how can your site be called trails.com if you don't even have a downloadable map itself?
