Member Report Lac du Bonnet Trails Association The Lac du Bonnet Trails Association is responsible for the Blue Water South portion of the Trans Canada Trail, which extends from the Pinawa Dam Provincial Heritage Park to Great Falls, a distance of approximately 37 km. The Blueberry Rock hiking trails are favoured by locals for the granite rock ridges, lookout tower that provides a view of the Winnipeg River, picnic tables, firepits, and accessibility to the town of Lac du Bonnet. The north end of the trail crosses Blueberry Rock Dr. and fol- lows Mackenzie Point Road, a short municipal road that leads to the dike along the Winnipeg River. The dike is a perfect place to ride a bike or a horse, or just go for a walk alongside the wide expanse of the Winnipeg River. The trail stays on the dike for approximately 5 km before turning west at Crescent Bay Road to cross Hwy. 11, then turns north to continue along a Hydro transmission road for another 5 kilometers. It crosses Hwy. 11 once again, arriving back on the dike. From here the trail stays on the dike right into the Hydro town of Great Falls, which is the north- ern boundary of the Bluewater South portion of the The Great Trail.
