Overview

Glen Cove Road serves as a primary artery within the Drummond Island trail network. This nearly 7-mile long trail connects the southern part of the island with Marblehead Road, Shale Beach, Stone's Throw and the East Marblehead Loop. Since this trail is a feeder, it is maintained at some level and none of the trail sits below the water line so there isn’t a ton of mud along the way either, but there is plenty to see. Drummond Island is host to a good size population of animals and is a haven in the area for birds. Sandhill Cranes, Upland Sandpipers, Vesper & Savannah Sparrows, and the occasional grouse can be seen along the way. The island is host to 13 eco-systems and 6 different types of forests. Get a good taste of the island as a whole and don’t take this trail for granted, take your time to enjoy nature and wildlife along it.
