Explore some cliffs and caves along beautiful Caribbean looking water (thanks to the limestone rock) just 2 hours North of Winnipeg. Along these trails you’ll find all kinds of berry bushes. Make your way to the Steep Rock beach if you want to chill out in the sun, and you can even prolong your stay if you want to stay in the campground!
Birds Hill Provincial Park
Birds Hill has a little bit of everything, from trails and beaches, to Winnipeg’s Folk Festival! One thing you have to do this summer is wander through the trails- and don’t forget a bag of shell-less sunflower seeds! Birds Hill has some of the friendliest birds, they’ll eat seeds right out of your hand!
