Devil’s Gap Trail

Local folklore has it that a farmer who was traveling the old colonization road with a wagon & a team of oxen became stuck. After many attempts to free the wagon the farmer gave up and went for help. When he returned, the wagon & oxen had disappeared without a trace. The gap in the rock has since been known as the Devil's Gap. Great photo opportunities include: beaver dams, expanses of Canadian Shield, vast marshland and open meadows.
