Corbeil Conservation Area
By North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority

In 1980, the NBMCA acquired the Corbeil Conservation Area for flood plain control as the land includes part of the historic LaVase River and its floodplain. Recognizing its unique ecological features, the NBMCA developed a self-guided, 3.4 kilometer trail which leads visitors across numerous boardwalks and through a variety of landscapes.

The displays detail the changes that occurred in the forest over time. A highlight of the walk is a number of interesting rock formations that were created by glaciers during the last ice age.

Directions: Travel south on Highway 11 to Highway 94. Continue to Corbeil and follow the signs to the conservation area.
