Discover the Place Where Culture and Nature Meet

Experience culture and breathtaking nature simultaneously at Brokenhead Wetlands Interpretive Trail. Visitors can experience the important connection between the wetland and the traditional Ojibway teachings of Respect, Purpose, Balance, and Interconnection. The Brokenhead Wetland Interpretive Trail contains 28 of Manitoba’s 37 native orchid species, including the globally rare Ram’s Head Lady-Slipper, the Dragon’s Mouth orchid and more common, yellow and pink lady slippers.

Located 50 minutes outside Winnipeg by paved highway and just north of the Brokenhead Ojibway First Nation, the fully wheelchair-accessible floating boardwalk is a 3.66 km return trip and takes approximately 2 hours to complete. While hiking, things to remember are staying on the trail and boardwalk to avoid harming and damaging plants and the natural habitat, no dogs or smoking on the trail, and no parking on the highway when the gate is closed.
