The luxuriant and varied forests of Aowanda are interesting all
year-round - not just during the late fall maple leaf season. Besides
maples and pines, there are also many other types of trees growing here.
Spring is a good time to go "forest bathing" with a walk along
one of the trails at Aowanda, and visitors can watch for birds, view the
waterfalls, or enjoy the cherry blossoms.
To see the cherry blossoms, set out from the visitor center and
head towards the Cherry Grove. You will soon find yourself in a sea of
cherry petals if you come at the right time.
There are bird-watching trails at Aowanda. Large numbers of migratory
birds and high mountain birds spend the winter here from November until
June. Dawn and sunset are the best times to see birds.
