Gravel River Provincial Nature Reserve
By Ontario Parks

Natural Features
This nature reserve features a lazy, meandering river that neatly cuts into its own deltaic sands, deposited over many centuries. The river has a good example of a bird's-foot delta -- a fan of sediments at a river's mouth dissected by tributaries, giving the impression of a webbed bird's foot.

Park Facilities and Activities
There are no visitor facilities. The well-forested terrain makes the area a good spot for nature viewing.

Location: About 55 kilometres northwest of Terrace Bay
