Almost 7 km of walking and cycling trails provide not only access to the varied habitats to explore and vistas to enjoy, but also serve to link existing trails from Darlington Provincial Park and the Second Marsh Wildlife Area. Trails within the Reserve are also linked to a strategic network of walkways which make up the Lake Ontario Waterfront Trail. The Waterfront Trail (spearheaded by Waterfront Regeneration Trust) will eventually link all of the waterfront communities from Niagara to Gananoque.
