The island’s location enables species usually found in the Laurentian and Appalachian mountains to mingle. In this insular environment, the forest, wetlands and mountains offer a unique setting for a wide variety of rare plants and animals. By exploring the northern part of Grosse île you might come face-to-face with deer, abundant in the absence of predators. Is that a bald eagle holding a fish in its talons? Many migratory species can be seen in season. Ideal for nesting, the habitat also has diverse birdlife. Although there is no trace of it today, the Mirador Trail takes its name from the gatehouse erected during the Second World War. It is a place teeming with life!
