PINAWA CHANNEL HERITAGE WALK
The Pinawa Channel Heritage Walk north of PR 211 and the Pinawa Channel is accessed either by the suspension bridge on Alice Chambers Trail or the Manitoba Hydro diversion dam east of Pinawa and at the end of PR 211. This trail has a separate summer and winter route.
This section of the Trans Canada Trail is designed for three seasons. Look for symbols of spring, summer, and fall and you will know you are on the correct trail. Remember there are other intersecting ski trails that you will see as you hike along this section. For your own safety please do not go off the signed main trail.
The Ironwood Park and Trail, follows the course of the Winnipeg River, highlighting
terrestrial and aquatic natural areas. It was named after the stand of “Ironwood” trees found in the public park. These trees are rare in Manitoba and represent the northern and western limits of their North American distribution.
The Ironwood Park and Trail is wheelchair accessible, with picnic tables and benches along the way summer and winter. Many specifically designed interpretive signs with an Ironwood hop and leaf describe flora, fauna, and the history of Pinawa.
