Carlton Trail Regional Park offers three groomed hiking trails that total 1.6km. The trails are perfect for birdwatching activities as they feature views of parkland and marsh spaces, and the bird stand provides an excellent vantage point. Geese, hummingbirds, ruffed grouse and orioles are just some of the bird species you may encounter along the trails. All of the trails are marked, regularly mowed and are quite wide in size. In the winter, the trails are also transformed into cross-country ski trails.The park is a popular destination spot for canoeing, paddleboating and row boating activities as these are the only types of watercraft that are permitted on the park's lake, due to its smaller size. There are also separate lakes for swimming and boating activities. The park is open from May 1 to Sep 30, and visitors are required to pay the regional park's entry fee to gain access to the trails.
