Point Trail - Murphy's Point


This trail loops around Murphys Point peninsula. It meanders through forest to a sandy beach overlooking Big Rideau Lake where there are picnic tables, toilets and change facilities.

Located on the historic Rideau Waterway, this park near Perth offers tours of a restored mica mine and trails – groomed in winter for cross-country skiing – to sawmill ruins and pioneer homesteads.

At Big Rideau Lake, pitch your tent at a boat-in campsite and enjoy boating, canoeing and exceptional fishing.
