Ritchie Lake Trail


The Ritchie Lake Trail is a short crushed rock trail that follows along the lake shore with a section of boardwalk on a wetter part. A side trail takes you to Lake Road in the next subdivision. The park has a small beach and a playground with very unique play structures. On my visit I followed a muskrat swimming along the shore (see video below).

From exit 137 on Route 1 turn towards Rothesay and then turn right onto Campbell Drive. Drive for 3 kilometres to the junction with Hampton Road. Continue straight through the intersection onto Pettingill Road. Drive for 1.2 kilometres and then turn right onto Cedar Grove Drive. After 100 metres turn left into the parking lot for Ritchie Lake Park. The trail starts near the back of the parking lot along the lake.
