Blueberry Rock Trail is a breathtaking mix of boreal forest, peaceful lakes, rock quarries and the amazing Canadian Shield. The trail is the perfect place to escape into nature for the day. With its peaceful setting, wildlife like bald eagles, great horned owls, and deer are common sites, and the view from the lookout tower is stunning no matter the time of day or year.
Open year-round, this 1.8km trail is great for people of all ages and hiking skill levels. When you enter through the entrance, you’ll wind through the boreal forest and climb gentle grades of granite outcroppings. If you’re worried about these minor climbs, you can enter the trail through the exit, where you’ll walk on a groomed trail, without having to deal with any type of granite inclines.
In July, Blueberry Rock is the perfect wildberry destination where you can pick pails of blueberries to share with the family, just make sure to be mindful of the wildlife, especially black bears, who also enjoy munching on these sweet treats.
Your time on the trail can be extended by enjoying the picnic area, outfitted with tables, fire pits, and firewood for your use. Blueberry Rock Trail is managed by the outstanding volunteers of the Lac du Bonnet Trails Association. Let’s all do our part to keep this trail looking beautiful for everyone. Please remember to take only pictures and to pack out what you pack in.
Blueberry Rock Trail is located on Blueberry Rock Drive, North off of PR 313, about 1km west of the Winnipeg River Bridge.
