The Lower Duck Pond to Raccoon Beach Trail is a wide, gravel, multi-use path. The trail goes through beautiful hardwood forest with lots of interesting twisted yellow birch. At about the halfway point there is a 200-metre side trail that takes you out to a bench on the edge of a bog. The trail out to the bog is a narrow, single track through the woods.
There are two access points for this trail. The first is at Raccoon Beach Meadow. From the Main Visitor Centre for Roosevelt Campobello International Park, cross the road and take the Glensevern Road. This road is a gravel road but usually is in good shape. Drive for 3.6 kilometres and you will come out into the field at Raccoon Beach. Continue through the meadow, and just as you are about to enter the woods again look for a parking area on the right. The trail is off the end of this parking area.
The other end of the trail can be found on the Lower Duck Pond Beach Road. Continue past Raccoon Beach Meadow on the Glensevern Road. After 1.3 kilometres turn right onto the Lower Duck Pond Beach Road. Drive a short distance to the parking lot at Lower Duck Pond Beach. Park here and walk back up the road for 200 metres. You will pass by the Duck Pond Multi-Use Trail and then the Lower Duck Pond to Raccoon Beach Trail on the left. The Duck Pond Multi-Use Trail is a wide, crushed rock trail, and the Lower Duck Pond to Raccoon Beach Trail is a wide gravel trail. Both trails have large boulders at the start of the trail.
