This important area protects more of the 3.5 billion-year-old silica and quartz La Cloche Mountains, formerly as high as the Rockies. In addition to encompassing the whole of Willisville Mountain, this property also protects two wetlands, crucial habitat for many of the 12 species at risk in the area.
Access to Willisville Mountain is along Highway 6, with parking available. Trails will take you through pristine forest up to the breathtaking top of the mountain. Views from the top are spectacular, out over the La Cloche Hills, to Manitoulin and the North Channel. It is a premier attraction.
