Great Auk Wetland Trail


If you have not yet discovered the splendor and beauty of our trail system, we hope you will make time to join us for hiking or cross–country skiing.

Over 15 km of trails available for both walking and cross–country skiing. See “Nordic Ski Club” for membership details.

This predominant feature of this trail is the “Provincially Significant” Marden South Wetland Complex. The trail was named in honour of the Great Auk, a flightless bird that became extinct in the mid-19th century. Great Auks walked slowly and sometimes used their wings to help them traverse rough terrain — appropriate qualities for trail hiking.
