First, good luck finding this place! These seems to be done on a wilderness conservation site. The trails are not well maintained and was often impassably muddy but really cool. Neat trinkets, signs and art. Someone(s?) put lots of effort into this enchanting little spot....More

Spent a gorgeous summer morning exploring the Wacky Woods in Fanny bay. The woods have several entrances and I'm not sure if we ever did find the official one. The trails meander and branch, with many hand carved totems, ad hoc set up little areas...More

I was brought here by friends who had been coming here for years. An artist who had lived nearby has created some wonderful sculptures throughout the woods as well as some artistic political messages and religious scrawling. Some of the pieces are wonderful, some are...More

Not really sure what to think of this place or how to review. If you're a Marxist who gets off on political and religious nonsense then you'll really enjoy this place

This is a trail near my home, and part of it has interesting displays and written word on wooden books stuck in trees or hanging hence the title "Wacky Woods". George Sawchuck was the creator but has since passed away, however there is a group...More

A little hard to find, but fun. The art installations are getting run down but the idea that George brought to life is still prevalent. Bring boots if in the rainy season as it was muddy with puddles. It's a nice short walk in the...More
