Trail 2 – O'Brien Trail
This trail is far more open than trail 1 and follows up the hill to trail 3 and the lookout. Trail 2 runs through the site of the 1961 fire that destroyed most of the boreal forest on the hill. Today the prevalent trees are deciduous species such as dogberry/mountain ash (Sorbus spp.), pin cherry (Prunus pennsylvanica), chuckley pear/service berry (Amelanchier spp.) and mountain alder (Alnus viridis subsp. crispa). It is a bright sunny walk and the increased light has resulted in dense shrub vegetation and excellent crops of berries including mountain holly (Ilex mucronata), crackerberry (Cornus canadensis) and blueberry (Vaccinium angustifolium).
