Trail Description:

Discover one of the Province’s premier migratory estuaries and nesting home to the remarkable western grebe. The Bird Blind and Osprey Nest viewing trail is found on the west side of the boat launch in front of the Prestige Harbourfront Resort, and links into the west walkway.

Peter Janyk Park: Your walk can be extended by adding a visit to the Peter Janyk Park. Where the walkway reconnects with Beatty Ave. west of the Prestige Hotel, turn right/west and continue along the sidewalk all the way to the Thrift Store. Turn right/north onto Narcisse St. (3rd Ave. NW) and walk toward the water and the lovely short loop through Peter Janyk Park with further views of the estuary.

The east walkway from the Wharf parking lot will connect you to the Raven Trail, viewing platforms, and Christmas Island (see Raven Trail description). Be sure to stop by the SABNES Nature Centre during the summer months, and check the bulletin boards year round for local bird counts and sighting updates.

Be sure to review the dog access rules and monitoring program here.
