Rod Reid Nature Trail

Season: Summer | Activity: Bird Watching, Hiking, Sightseeing, Tracks and Trails

Experience Nature’s Wonders on the Rod Reid Trail
The Rod Reid Nature Trail is a perfect activity for families. Its 2.3 km path with its wide and level-ground terrain is ideal for children and seniors alike. The trail encompasses the breathtaking Loch Lomond wetlands, which allows hikers to observe the area’s unique birds and examine wetland plants from several viewing platforms. The Beaver Pond, formerly known as Loch Lomond, was named after the beaver dam that created it, which is still visible at the pond’s mouth. Generally considered an easy route, it takes an average of 35 min to complete. This is a very popular area for birding, cross-country skiing, and horseback riding, so you’ll likely encounter other people while exploring. Dogs are welcome but must be on a leash.

To carve your own path, we recommend downloading the “All Trails” App for trail visuals and information. 

Directions: This trail can be easily reached by driving up 8th Ave, then connecting to 9th Avenue until you reach the parking lot.
