General Details

Provincial Park Trail
Sand dunes shifting on the whim of the wind; unlikely plants like the pincushion cactus; and strange creatures like the hognose snake cause one to wonder....Manitoba? This is the truly unique Spirit Sands. Within minutes you're staring down at an eerie blue-green oasis of spruce trees and a spring-fed pond. This is the Devils Punch Bowl. By mid-afternoon you're enjoying the coolness of riverbank forests, wandering through the sweet mixed-grass prairie and lingering at the striking views from the Steels Ferry Overlook. All of this is Spruce Woods, a unique mixture of natural contrasts and wondrous adventures.
