Forbidden Plateau & Strathcona Provincial Park
The walk begins with extensive boardwalks through Paradise Meadows. It's a delight to walk with ease above these fascinating wetlands. Look out for the friendly Grey Jays who will take food from your hand! The wetlands give way to steep but well maintained tracks up forested slopes, giving you a variety of trail options, allowing you to choose a route that you can comfortably accomplish in the time you have available.
The paths are designed to take you around the lakes that lie amongst the mountains to the best viewpoints, some of which have pontoons or decks right on the water. You can easily make a day of it, or combine it with half a day spent within the Mount Washington Ski Resort Area, which is what we usually do.
