The western woodlands include a prime example of the rare Black Oak Savannah and Woodlands habitat found in High Park.
On these trails you will see examples of remnant oak woodland communities on the upland slopes and locally significant wetland communities within and surrounding Grenadier Pond.
These plant communities offer the opportunity to view many rare species of plants and wildflowers including Black Oak, Wild Lupine, Cup-plant and Sweet Flag (at the pond's edge). They also provide habitat for many species of birds, animals and insects (and fish in the ponds).
