About This Experience

“The frog pond loop is an easy 1.4km around a large pond, with trail connections to the Dingle Tower & Northwest Arm.

There are numerous benches to sit on, as well as peaceful nooks by the pond. Various trail maps and markers guide your way whether you are doing a loop or carrying on towards the Northwest Arm.

The frog pond is a haven for ducks, frogs, turtles and waterfowl alike, making it a great place for bird-watching. The viewing area off of Purcell’s Cove Road makes a good spot to stop. This area can also be used to go paddling in summer, or to strap on your skates in winter.”
