The Shield Trail is the second hiking trail Aiko and I adventured on. It is a 4.8 km hike through hardwood forest, cedar lowlands, and a beaver swamp. You also glimpse Bon Echo Lake, although it is steep and hard to get to for a better view.
This trail is also categorized at moderate. It seems so nice and smooth at the beginning, but once you get going, it can get rough! There were actually a few moments where I had to stop and find the trail marker to make sure I was going in the right direction. Overall, it was a fantastic and beautiful trail, and a great way to spend the afternoon!
