Menzel Centennial Provincial Nature Reserve
Grab your backpack and lets go for a hike!
Menzel Centennial is one of Lennox & Addington County’s most well-kept secrets for nature lovers. Found just west of Roblin, Ontario, it’s a 4.8 km path with an abundance of significant wetlands that makes for a visit well worth making. Menzel Centennial provides spectacular views including a swamp forest, wildlife, and lake with wetlands in abundance.
The 800 hectare nature reserve protects one of the largest examples of open and treed fen in southeastern Ontario. Fens, which are rare in southern Ontario, are botanically rich wetlands found mostly in large shallow depressions in the landscape. In the middle of the reserve is Mud Lake, a shallow water body, surrounded by 19 different natural habitats.
