Nothing special here, just a quick walk through the woods. Suitable for all ages.

Fun, level walk to the southernmost point of mainland Canada! The trail is muddy, so wear proper footwear. It’s also very windy at the tip. We saw tons of seabirds!

Nice long hike today from Centennial parking lot to the tip. The tip is currently quite extensive, so very nice to walk the 100m+ of sand. Somewhat windy, with the direction coming East to West, which is unusual for the Point. Still, nice couple hours at the Park

Started at the point (visitor centre). There are many great views and the trail has many clear signs directing you to Lookout points and the boardwalk leading into the marsh. You cannot ride your bike on the boardwalk so plan to either lock it up or hike to that particular area at another point. the trail itself is bumpy and great for someone who has a hybrid bike. I would not recommend a road bike on this trail.

Nice trail. Confused couple times but probably since it was my first time biking there. Bugs were low, not to many people on the trails but have to keep a eye since you can come up on hikers quick. Very moderate trail. Still worth it tho.

Great walk I love the fact that it is accessible for scooters or wheelchair. Many birds

This is our most used go-to walking trail. It has some elevation differences at several points of the walk. There is a lot of heritage, history and nature to view here. This walk you get a little bit of everything! Half on land, half on unrailed boardwalk.

Very easy. Multiple access points. Good relaxing hike/walk. Go in spring (May) for great birding opportunities.

Decent length of walk, about 30-40mins. Usually quite a bit of wildlife to see - birds and water life. There are points of the walk that do not have railing, at all. Which I am not fond of . It’s a decent length of walk without railing, about half the walk is unsecured without railings. Nice elevated bridge with lookout points about 3/4 through walk. Also at the walk entrance/exit there is a lookout tower that goes about 5 stories I believe. Very nice spot to explore every now and then and great for tourists.

Multiple entrance points to determine the length of your walk. Walk averages 20-30 mins when I go with my two children. Historic houses that you can enter, depending on time that you go. This walk is part land/dirt-stone and part boardwalk . This walk is one of my favourites as there’s always something new to see!

beautiful day out. picnic and lots of gorgeous photos

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. http://lightwander.co/blog/point-pelee/

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. http://lightwander.co/blog/point-pelee/

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!
