2.3 miles from the mooring buoy in Shoalwater Cove past Lower Winstanley Lake to the shelter (M22) at Winstanley Lake. This trail is rated moderately difficult. After the first mile, the trail crosses Winstanley Creek on a bridge built using traditional hand tools. Take a few minutes to observe the details in construction of this 65 foot bridge. The trail continues on past muskegs, beaver ponds, and old growth timber. The second crossing of Winstanley Creek must be accomplished by wading as the bridge has recently washd out. Panoramic views and excellent birding opportunities abound. A skiff is provided at the Winstanley Lake Shelter.
