The Bell River Canyon is known as the "Grand Canyon of MB", arguably the biggest, broadest, yet still accessible canyons. The Gobbler's Knob, a large outcropping on the far side of the canyon, is the destination for the Bell Canyon view. This outlook is wonderful and worth the long hike which is 7.1 km one way. There are no trail markers along the unmaintained trail and beaver activity has altered some of the trail, so bring some navigational material and appropriate gear. An additional, yet not as spectacular lookout exists another 600 m beyond the hogsback turnoff. Note; trapping, hunting and logging may be active in the area, so please contact the local government office to inquire about the status of these activities. The trail crosses Wuskwi Sipihk First Nation land and users are advised to contact the lands manager for permission to cross land.
