Description: 

Fort Willow has a fascinating history that goes back to the war of 1812 when it was setup to be a supply depot. The area surrounding Fort Willow had been used for centuries by Aboriginal peoples, French explorers, and those involved in the fur trade as part of a transportation route called the 9 Mile Portage.

Today, visitors can visit the recently restored historic buildings once used by the soldiers and an information kiosk provides some history about the areas past. In addition, the area boasts a trail network where visitors can enjoy the peaceful and beautiful environment and the many monarch butterflies that migrate here every summer. From here you can start a trip on the Trans Canada Trail or Ganaraska Hiking Trails.
