      Dunes 12 metres high and kilometres of inviting warm sand beach receive the gentle waves of the great prairie sea. This is Grand Beach, located on Lake Winnipeg - the sixth largest lake in Canada. The beach, considered one of the best in North America, beckons the sun worshipper in all of us. Travels to Grand Beach have been a tradition since the days of the carousel, the dance hall and train rides to the beach in the 1920s. Nowadays, nature's strong summer potion of sun, sand and water draws thousands of people from miles around. A popular destination for XC skiing in winter and hiking and mountain biking in the summer.

      Where to stay: Grand Beach campground, offers basic and electrically serviced sites. Cottage rentals are available adjacent to the park.

      Provincial Park Vehicle Permit required year-round.

      About a one hour drive north of Winnipeg on HWY 59 (also marked as HWY 12 where the HWY narrows from 4 to 2 lanes). Watch for Grand Beach Exit signs and take fork to left at about 5k to go). Large gravel parking lot. Outhouse, no running water.

      A couple popular loops that are about 6-7 km. MTB Loops are presently unmarked but most single track trails are well ridden and easy to spot off the main double track system. There are maps posted that show that double track trails and where you are, but the single track trails don't appear on these maps.
