Overview

Drummond Island has many unique features, some easier to get to than others. East Poe Point Road is an easy and muddy dirt road that works it’s way north through the island’s alvars and onto the fossil ledges. The Fossil Ledges on Drummond Island is the fossilized remains of a 450 million-year-old sea bed. If you make your way to the beach, make sure to look and take pictures of the fossils you find but take nothing from the beach and help preserve it for future generations. On top of the fossils that are waiting to be found, Drummond Island has lots of opportunities for adventure. Drummond Island is 250 square miles packed full of activities for everyone in your group. The island has 13 distinct ecosystems that attract wildlife to match and is a destination for bird watching. If you’re looking for an easy day on the island trails with plenty to see, hop on the ferry and run this with Bruce Point Road and Colton Bay Road to get a taste of the island.
