Two amazing hiking trails....one 25 minute and the other 40 minute (one way). An excellent, walking trail that provides entertainment for a non-athletic to slightly athletic group.

From the fox we saw at the park entrance and eagles flying overhead to the sheer size of Lake Winnipeg and the amazing spa waters at Hecla Resort, this was well worth the trip. Plans to return already.

Visiting Hecla in late September is fantastic. It is quiet and breathtakingly beautiful. The boardwalks at Grassy Narrows marshlands is a must any time of the year, but was especially enjoyable (no bugs) and pleasant in September.
