Falcon Creek trail head is located north of the Trans-Canada Highway near the entrance to Falcon Lake. This trail reveals that glaciers once covered this land; rocks and boulders were scattered randomly as the ice receded. One can see the effects of a forest fire here as well.
Time: 1 Hour
Have you ever had a rock collection? Many of us are fascinated with rocks-their colours, shapes and textures. We imagine they are treasures with bits of gold, or fossils of ancient sea creatures, locked away in them. The rocks of the Whiteshell are treasures because they are so old. They have been on a great adventure around the world, and today they bear the scars of many fantastic events.
Welcome to the Falcon Creek Trail. It should take you about one and a half hours to walk the trail and do the activities for the self guided portion. Be careful if the rocks are wet and slippery. We recommend you wear good walking shoes or hiking boots. Please supervise children at all times along the trail. Do your share to protect our park resources, take only pictures and leave only footprints.
