Debwendon Inc - Brokenhead Wetland Interpretive Trail

Debwendon Inc. welcomes you to the Brokenhead Wetland Interpretive Trail. As you go along the trail, listen to the birds and smell the cedar. Watch for rare plants such as wild orchids, insect-eating plants and mushrooms. This wetland is a sacred area that has been used by the local Ojibway for over 300 years to gather food and medicinal plants and for sacred ceremonies. The theme of the trail was designed to highlight the significance of the historic cultural connection between the Brokenhead Ojibway Nation (BON) and the Brokenhead Wetland.

The trail is located approximately 80 km (50 mi.) north of Winnipeg along Highway 59. The trail is 1.83 km (3.66 km return) and takes approximately two hours round trip to walk. The trail is fully wheelchair and stroller accessible and there is ample parking, washrooms, garbage and recycling bins, and picnic tables at the trailhead.
