Always wanted to go here - finally did today. Drove most of the way in and hiked the final 3 kms. to the lookout point. We had a fire and a picnic while enjoying the spectacular view. It's worth the trip. (We did see a bear on the trail.)
I'd go here again and park further away.

This trail begins and ends in the Black's Point Beach Parking lot. Originally, it consisted of a 2km loop with interpretive bulletins posted along the way. Recently, (2018) a new loop was cut near the trailhead, nearly tripling the trail length. This new loop rejoins the original trail just down stream of its origin. You have the option of turning left to add to your hike or continuing straight on the original trail. There are several side trails giving hikers access to most intersections in the Black's point Subdivision, if they prefer.

This trail takes you through the entirety of the Grindstone cottage area. Parts of the trail are through the bush with views of the lake, while other parts pass through cottage areas on gravel road. A nice easy trail either way.

We could only get about half way to the lake, route is impassible by smaller ATVs. Really wet swampy muskeg made it impossible for us.

To answer Kevin Esau's comments we have uploaded a recording for the alternative route to access the trail from the east, therefore avoiding the river crossing. Please review the recording "Pike's Peak Alternative Access" and details for more info.

Cool trail system. Only had Time for the small 1st trail which took about 25min. *warning* after the short walk my dog had about 12 ticks on her and I even found a few on my ankles. Tuck your pants into your socks and make sure you check your pet after this hike!

Good trail. Wide gravel/rock trail. Minimal mud holes (unfortunately). some flooded spots due to beavers, but easily passible

Tried the hike on May 31, 2018. Parked at the fork of the snowmobile traile/maintenance trail. Northbound was closed due to a closed road sign stating bridge was out. Westbound was closed due to fire risk sign.
Tried walking to river. Once I got there, bridge was out and no way to cross the river. Did not try to bush wack to a possible crossing so not sure if there are options. So until river goes down or bridge is replaced I would not recommend

It is a pretty park like setting with beautiful birds filling the air in song, easy to walk, and for the most part rubbish free. Unfortunately, there are too many soaking wet dogs off leash trying to shake or rub on you. I would not go back

Excellent hiking trail in the summer and cross country ski trail in the winter! Will not disappoint!!

Love this trail. Have to cross river on foot...wear good shoes and take a walking stick. Make noise to let bears know you are in their neighbourhood.

Great Fishing destination! The lake is only a short distance away, but it can be hard to access due to the trail conditions

Home to small-sized perch. Access is tricky in the summer as the trail is a natural path through the forest and there are no markers of any kind. Best visited in the winter months as there is a short trail adjacent to West Watjask Lake.

Ah the Museum Trail! An absolute favorite, the trail is grassy so it's great in spring when it's wet, cool and shady in the summer, protected from winter winds, and so stunning in the fall. I'm my dog and I have trekked on this trail hundreds of times. There is a cross country snow shoe trail, a groomed cross country ski trail, and the added bonus of wandering around the museum grounds looking at all the old buildings. A beautiful setting and easy to access. If you take your dog (s), there are garbage bins and doggie bags for picking up poop, so PLEASE use them!! Keep our trails clean!

I have walked this trail many many times. It is one of my favourite places to go, especially with my dogs. It is so close to town, takes just minutes to get there, and yet it feels like you are 'out in nature".
One of the best things about Swan River!

One of the Best Views in Manitoba!

I love the Transcona Bioreserve. Can almost forget you're in the city hiking / biking these trails. Lots of wildlife to see and different areas to explore (bring your camera). The Bioreserve is fun to hike all year long with well maintained trails.
