Water's Edge Trail


This trail winds around the point, across the beach and along the south shore of McPhee Bay. Starting near the park entrance, the first stretch is wide and flat along the scenic shores of Lake Simcoe.

At the most southerly tip of McRae Point, there is a splendid view of Strawberry Island and of Lake Simcoe. Keep an eye out for wild ducks.Watch for birds and wildlife as you walk through cedar and hardwood swamps and climb to a mixed forest and cedar ridge.

A boardwalk crosses the fern-thick marsh then hugs the Lake Simcoe shore before reaching a lookout.
