Group Hike at Beaudry Provincial Park


Group Hike at Beaudry Provincial Park

September 7 2024

Enjoy a beautiful hike at Beaudry Provincial Park, only a short drive west of Winnipeg.


We are hosting two hikes on Saturday. Register for the 11 am hike. Register for the 1:30 pm hike here.


It’s close enough to the city to squeeze a hike into a busy Saturday, and far enough to escape from traffic noise and enjoy the soothing sounds of nature.

Wide, well-marked paths follow the curve of the Assiniboine River and offer enough gentle slopes to get little legs leaping. On dry days they’re suitable for strollers and bikes.

The forest is filled with fallen trees to climb and transform into makeshift clubhouses. There’s also plenty of open space in the natural prairie for flying kites on a windy day.

We will start with the 2.5 km Wild Grape Trail with the option to continue on the 2 km Oak Trail.

This hike is designed to take around 1-2 hours to complete.

Beaudry has some of the largest basswood, cottonwood and maple trees in the area. It’s also home to white-tailed deer, foxes, owls, raccoons, beaver, muskrat and a multitude of birds.


Outdoor Fun: What to Expect on Your Group Hike

Our group hikes are an easy way to get outside and explore Manitoba’s beautiful provincial parks with other people.

CPAWS staff will share their love of nature on a relaxing hike along our favourite trails. There won’t be any lectures along the way: when we stop for water and snack breaks we’ll keep the conversation casual and light.

If you’ve got questions we’ll do our best to answer them. However, we are not formally trained park interpreters. We encourage people seeking learning opportunities to check out our outdoor learning programming or try an interpretive event offered by Manitoba Parks.


How to Get There

Travel west along Roblin Road for about 10 kilometres past the city limits. Be sure to slow down when driving through Headingley.


Travel west along Highway 1. When you get to Headingley turn south (left) onto 334. Then hang a right to go west along 241. Be sure to slow down when driving through Headingley.

Watch for the sign for Beaudry Provincial Park and turn right into the parking lot.

Don’t forget your provincial park pass!

  • There’s an outhouse and a handful of picnic tables at the trailhead.
  • There are gas stations and restaurants in Headingley and plenty of options along Portage Ave just inside the perimeter.
  • Our favourite places to stop are Nick’s Inn in Headingley if we take Portage Ave or Crampton’s Market and Shelmerdine’s Garden Centre along Roblin Road.


What to Bring on Your Hike

  • A park pass is required for all vehicles entering provincial parks. An annual pass (which can be used in two vehicles) is $44.50. Daily permits are $9.50.
  • Check the weather forecast and dress appropriately! Pack a hat if it’s sunny, a raincoat if it’s going to get wet, and a sweater or jacket if it’s going to be windy or cold. Dress in layers so you can cool off or warm up as needed.
  • Bring at least two bottles of water: you can leave one in your vehicle on a cool day; you’ll want both on the hike if it’s hot.
  • Bug spray and sunscreen: you can apply in the parking lot so you don’t need to carry them on the hike.
  • Comfortable, sturdy shoes are a must. You don’t need hiking boots. But sneakers are definitely a better choice than flip flops.
  • Snacks are a great way to keep your energy up along the trail.
  • Hand sanitizer (Most trails have outhouses, not modern toilets.)
  • Any medication you may need (like your asthma inhaler or an EpiPen)
  • A safety whistle and a basic first aid kit (not required, but a good idea any time you’re in the wilderness)
