Cranberry Trail

This beautiful family-friendly hiking trail begins at the end of Cranberry Road in Callander, and stretches out to Callander Bay.  The trail branches off about halfway through, leading to a platform overlooking the Cranberry Marsh.  With interpretive signage, benches along the way, and a gorgeous view of Callander Bay, this trail is perfect for the whole family. Don’t miss the Cranberry Day festival that happens each fall!
