Trail Information

Highlights

Drummond Island is home to the largest remaining Alvar in North America and East Bruce Point Road is access to the birds that inhabit this rare ecosystem. The trail runs through the Maxton Plains Alvar where you can see Herons, Sandpipers, Brown Thrashers, Savannah Sparrows, and an occasional grouse. This easy road is great for those who want to get a taste of the wildlife on Drummond without getting into some of the more remote and harsher areas of the island.

This trail isn't much in terms of off-roading but the bird watching is very cool. If we had extra time we would have gone back here at night to stargaze some.
