Crawford Bay Wetlands Trail

Crawford Bay Wetlands Trail

The Crawford Bay Wetlands Trail is an easily accessibly trail that meanders through the wetlands and along the beaches at the mouth of Crawford Bay, within the new Crawford Bay Regional Park. While walking expect to see many species of birds and possibly even beavers along the way. 

To get here head south on Peters Road from Highway 3a for 350 meters to the beginning of the trail at the first corner.

From the trailhead walk 375 meters into the wetlands path and go straight at the fork in the trail. Travel 625 meters and cross the boardwalk, another 800 meters and check out the beaver dam on your right, another kilometer and you are at the west beach.

Turn left and follow the shoreline east, cross over the southern trail at the beginning of the airstrip and 1.5 kms you are at the east beach. From here you may want to return or follow along the dirt road along Crawford Creek that takes you to Highway 3-A.
