Beautiful, peaceful place to spend an afternoon. We walked around the edge of the bay.(It was frozen solid!) There were swans out in the bay.

Kayak, fish or hike around the trails. Lots of wildlife around. Great spot to spend an afternoon. Park at the bottom of the GM HQ parking lot. Free parking.

Located near GMC HQ, this is a must see! The view from GM is AMAZING!

Not too sure about parking, on the north side you can park on the street. I didn't see latrines or water fountains.

There weren't many bugs, and overall it was pretty scenic. Parts were closed due to the Boomer-Doomer, but what I did see was good!

There were some pokemon stops and gyms.

Beautiful scenery! Great place to walk. Can get a bit muddy at times, so wear proper shoes. Always enjoy going for a walk here.

We went for a walk on a beautiful fall afternoon. I would suggest proper foot wear if you want to use any trail other than the paved ones. After a day of rain, there were some muddy spots, and some cut grass. The trails are easily travelled, no tricky spots. We stumbled upon a beautiful rocky shore on Lake Ontario with a marvellous view. Ample parking here.

Next door to the GM HQ parking lot it is very easy to park/walk to the trails. There are several trails so you can pick the one that suits your ambition level. Bonus: There are electric car charging stations in the lot if you have an EV.

This is a hidden gem along the north shore of Lake Ontario! Grassy walking trails and lots of interesting vistas.

I am a big fan of the McLaughlin Bay Wildlife Reserve and thankful to all the volunteers who made it a reality. I thoroughly enjoyed my last vist - except for the mosquitoes. I was saddened to see the poor state of the boardwalk. Part of it was cordoned off but there are a lot of boards that need to be replaced. It's a great place for bird watching.

It's a lovely marsh trail...however, there were no garbage cans or recycling bins available where the path entrance is located. As well, there are no dogs allowed....If you have your dog on a leash, why can't we walk our dogs here? They claim is scares some of the wildlife...well, that's nature...why try to control a natural environment where the hierarchy of the animal kingdom will sort out its own domain...
