Such a unique and fabulous opportunity...wander at your own pace and enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery in the valley, and all the wildlife that calls it home. Just minutes from the downtown core, easily accessible and a photographer’s dream.

An true gem! Well maintained paths in a natural ecosystem. I have been going for 45 years and love to show off our beautiful valley to European guests. Talk to a Jr biologist, take a canoe ride. A very Canadian experience! Eh!
