25 March 2017 | Birder's Guide to Travel in our opinion, the best techniques and loca- tions along Provincial Highway 60 for finding and observing certain of these sought-after spe- cies groups. Northern Specialties During our collective 85 years of birding Algonquin, we have had the most consistent luck observing northern species at three lo- cations along Highway 60: Wolf Howl Pond through to West Rose Lake on the Mizzy Lake Trail (km 15.4 on Highway 60), known locally as the "Golden Mile"; the entire length of Spruce Bog Boardwalk Trail (km 42.5), although be - tween the first and second boardwalks tends to be best for Spruce Grouse; and Opeongo Road (km 46.3), particularly the northern portion.
