Lac du Bonnet is truly a unique destination to go hiking through! We have plenty of wildlife, an abundance of plant life, and a breathtaking mix of boreal forest, lakeside paradise, prairie wonders, and magnificent Canadian Shield!
If you love hiking, Lac du Bonnet is the place for you! Try out the Blueberry Rock Trail for hours of peaceful nature, gorgeous scenery, and blueberries when in season! Or stop by Pinawa Dam Provincial Heritage Park for a stunning walk through this historic site of Manitoba’s first hydroelectric generating station. Enjoy the tall grass, wildlife, and openness of the trail around the Lac du Bonnet Wildlife Ponds or explore a portion of the Trans Canada Trail with Blue Water South Trail! It begins at Pinawa Dam and travels approximately 37 km until Great Falls!
All winter long, our trails are transformed into stunning winter wonderlands. Blueberry Rock is a tranquil place to hike and includes a firepit at the halfway point where you can rest and warm up among the snowy branches. The Lac du Bonnet ponds and Blue Water South trails are great areas to explore by snowshoe. The Blue Water South Trail also offers a perfectly groomed cross-country ski trail from Tower Road to Pinawa Dam Provincial Heritage Park.
The Agassiz Cross-country Skiing Trail offers 11km of perfectly groomed skiing trails through the magical Agassiz Provincial Forest. Encounter gentle slopes, mild inclines, and plenty of level ground as you ski among the pines and spruce bogs while catching sight of the wildlife that calls this forest home. This trail is proudly brought to us by the wonderful volunteers of the Lac du Bonnet Cross-country Ski Club. The trails are off highway 317 and provide ample parking space at the entrance to the Agassiz Provincial Forest.
