Here are some key features you will find along the loop….
The marina is one of the best on western Lake Ontario, with docking spaces for 330 boats and a double boat launch. Other marina facilities include a fully serviced gas dock and pump-out station, visitor docks, hydro hook-ups, water, showers, washrooms, a laundromat and winter storage facilities. Fifty Point Marina has been honoured with the achievement of a Five Green Anchor Diamond rating under the Clean Marine program.
Next, you will take in the stunning view of the Fifty Point lighthouse. Be sure to stop and take a picture!
Bird Viewing Platform
As you continue along the path you will reach the bird viewing platform. It is in the middle of an internationally recognized Important Birding Area and the land form that juts out into Lake Ontario is known as a wonderful spot to watch for migrating waterfowl and pelagic (sea) birds.
After all of that walking, you’ll want to kick your shoes off and relax by the beach. If you decide to stay for a while change rooms are conveniently located at the nearby beach house. Take a quick dip!
Once you’ve cooled off at the Fifty Point beach, try your at the fishing pond! Catch rainbow trout or largemouth bass.
