You must find the right spot!!
Directions: From Picton follow County Rd 10 south to Cty Rd 24 which will take you to the point.
When driving some the old service road on Cty Rd 24, you still have to take trail into the shoreline along the water. The first visible trail on the right will allow your car to drive in and park, with a view of a Blue, Barn roof across the Lake.
Beachcomb on the long pebble beach for driftwood and fossils, swim off the big flat limestone ledges, it’s a quiet beautiful place for a picnic. Enjoy the quiet, nature, and beauty as you stroll along the Majestic rocks and shoreline. Take the time to enjoy the cliffs and all scenery, as you wander completely along the shore and you may even make it to the Point Petre Lighthouse. Unfortunately theLighthouse is section off butwould be a great trek and site to see and relive history.
During spring and fall migration, it is one of the finest birding areas in Canada. Point Petre is an important stopover for mallard, black duck, blue- and green-winged teal, wood duck, hooded merganser, lesser and greater scaup, bufflehead and common merganser.
Notes: Walk along the shore for a hike to the red Lighthouse and amazing rock formations, blue waterways, and other spectacular sites.
