Kap-Kig-Iwan Provincial Park


The park is also a good spot to watch and listen for nesting birds. Many forest songbirds like warblers and flycatchers make their summer homes here, raising chicks and defending their territories. The river and its valley provide many habitats for them.

Several species of birds can be seen year-round at the park including: Black-capped Chickadees, Red-breasted Nuthatches, and woodpeckers.


Anglers may catch Northern Pike, Walleye, Small-mouth Bass and Brook Trout.


Kap-Kig-Iwan has two hiking trails. A scenic lookout provides a bird’s-eye view of the valley, and trails lead along the river to many of the waterfalls on the Englehart River.

Hell’s Gate Trail 2.3 km return (1 hour) moderate - This trail follows the Englehart River past waterfalls, rapids and deep ravines.

Upland Circle Trail 4 km (2.5 hours) moderate - Bird watching is excellent along this trail through pine, birch and poplar stands.
