John E. Pearce Provincial Park has several different areas and is great for history buffs as well as nature lovers. You can download a map from the park website that has an info booklet as well as a trail map that points out interesting items as well as the various plants and wildlife you may come across. There is a hiking trail within the park, the Backus-Page House Museum, another unofficial trail with views of Lake Erie from the cliffs above, a historic church and a nearby cemetery with sites from the 1800s. There used to be trails along the cliffs with even better views of the water below, but they have become unstable due to erosion. There are a lot of different plants, birds and other wildlife to see on both Spicer Trail as well as on the lake side of the park. You could easily spend a few leisurely hours exploring this park on a lazy day. I hope that the province comes in to help stabilize the cliff areas so that the trails can be reopened and beautiful views can be once again enjoyed by the visitors to the park.

We admittedly didn't spend alot of time here. Really no trails to walk, it was also a hot day. We mainly went because our foreign exchange student wanted to see the Lake.

He was delighted to see it. Seeing the variation in the water due the erosion fascinated him and we just stood and watched for quite a while.

We got here later in the day on a rainy day and only got to experience the marsh walk. What we saw was pretty fun though as the park has reclaimed some interesting land from agriculture and allowed it to return to its original state. This park is maybe not a place to explore by itself but would make for a good combination with some other parks in the area. We also did Rondeau in the same day.

There is nothing on the website about the cliffside trails being inaccessible. Understandably for safety but it should be posted. As well the office and Museum were not open when the signs and website said they were. This is a day use park that is free, other than the museum, which apparently means the trails aren't maintained and are allowed to overgrow.

We went in the am to do birding. Saw woodpeckers, grosbeaks, wrens and other birds as well as butterflies etc. Easy to walk about, take photos and see the birds which was, of course, why we went. Could not see the cliffs as there is danger from land loss. We were the only folk there. Well worth a visit.

Bucket list item is to visit every Provincial Park in Ontario. This one is not active. We drove in and were able to have a picnic lunch but it is fenced off for safety due to the cliff being undercut by Lake Erie. We did however really enjoy our tour of a little church just across the street (St. Peter's Anglican Church).

Super spot for a picnic with a view. Just be careful with kids and pets that they do not go over the edge!
