We did a two night trail hike. Very clean, great woods, well maintained trail. The terrain is hilly and rocky so have good shoes and give yourself extra time for the distances. Highly recommended.

A new First Nation owned and operated park offers hiking, paddling and other guided experiences

We had found out about this new park, located on Native Land and run by First Nations, from a pamphlet and called the listed number, but there was a recording directing us to their website. Considering that there was no cell coverage in most of the park [(and no wi-fi ;)], it would have been quite difficult to follow their instructions!

Since we stayed in nearby Killarney Park, one day we drove to Point Grondine Park. We spent some 15 minutes walking a little along the road and the trail, the scenery was awesome. Because in 2010 we had circumnavigated Philip Edward Island by canoe and even stopped at Point Grondine Reserve, I am well aware that the area is spectacular.

There was a map and self-serve payment station. I think that there are only hiking trails and a water trail, which includes a 3 km portage—or the ‘portage-less’ loop around Philip Edward Island. We talked to a young guy with a big dog who was about to embark on a long hike—he had encountered problems while trying to make the payment, the machine did not want to accept his money and when we changed some bills for him, he was finally able to pay. There was a guest book and according to recent entries, some tourists, unable to make the payment, left the park. I hope that the management will eliminate those issues which discouraged many potential visitors.

It was a great idea to have established the park and I sincerely hope that next year all the glitches would be resolved.
