A lush Carolinian forest oasis at the southern tip of Canada, Point Pelee National Park resounds with migrating song birds in the spring, hums with cicadas in the summer, flutters with Monarch butterflies in the fall and is a peaceful place of reflection in the winter.

Wonderful walk for birding. Very easy for my 10 and 11 year old. Our one year old enjoyed trying to get into the marsh. Parents didn't enjoy that part.

The trail is easy but there are some season footpaths that are difficult. We took a footpath that landed us on the beach it was gorgeous.

Very cool trail! Worth the visit if you're from SWO

The east side footpath is windy; don’t be surprised if you step into mud or get splashed by crashing waves. The west paved trail offers a calmer presence; gazing over the edge of Lake Erie, it’s hard to tell where the lake ends and sky starts.

Quick hike to the eastern shoreline with plenty of biodiversity in sight!

The Marsh boardwalk offers an oasis of tranquility and peace. Here you will get hypnotized by the floating lily pads, wavering cattails, and pond ripples.

This is a wonderful little trail between the point and the visitor center. In addition to the scenery, I saw several Yellow Warblers and Baltimore Orioles. I walked it twice!

nice, easy trail that can be biked, hiked or snowshoed/xc skied depending on amount of snow. Located in Point Pelee National Park which is the southern most mainland in Canada. The trail itself is well maintained by Park staff composed of hard pack limestone. Depending on the time of the year (there is usually very little foot traffic in the late Fall & Winter) I can stretch the ride out to almost 20 km's by utilizing other trails and the main roadway.
