Site Description and Birding Information: East of 9 Mile Road, Route 200 becomes Martel Road, which passes through a good variety of deciduous and coniferous woodland along the way. The entire area can be quite wet in any season but winter, so boots are recommended in warmer months. Insects can be bothersome at that time too.
The End of the Line at the East End of Martel Road
Larose Forest Loop Directions: From Martel Road East End return WSW 1.0 km to the junction of Nine Mile, Martel (Route 200W) and Bertrand Roads. Then turn left onto Bertrand Road (the southern extension of Nine Mile Road) and go SSE 1.5 km on Bertrand to the next site on this route, the South Nation River at Bertrand Road and Route 300W.
