Sackville Lakes Provincial Park Walking Trails
After recommendations from several people, we were on our way to the city one day and decided to stop off and check out the Sackville Lakes Provincial Parks and Walking Trails!
- A great lake access park within city limits.
- Wheelchair accessible.
- Wide crusher-dust pathways.
About the Trails
There are a series of several connected trails that you can use to build your own hiking adventure.
For our adventure, we decided to do the loop trail (blue on the map above) to explore the area around Second Lake.
This is a 2.8km trail that took us about 45 minutes to complete.
The trail is flat and wide, making it perfect for strollers, wheelchairs and bikes.
We saw lots of wildlife en route, including a frog
and a toad. We also saw fish swimming in the lake.
There were great views of the lake, and a couple of places with a mini beach where you could probably dip in the lake!
As you drive along, there are many trail head signs along First Lake Drive. These offshoots will take you to the main trails.
One of the main trail heads is on the left side of the road, and one is on the right side of the road. So, decide where you want to explore, and park and start your walk!
The main trailheads are on First Lake Drive. They are clearly labeled.
And, yes! there are outhouses on site! Benches, and picnic tables.
The next time you are heading to the city, stop off for a quick stroll to enjoy this lovely nature area minutes from Highway 101. You will never know you are so close to the city!
