Brunswick Point Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"When trails are icebound, a brisk walk is still possible along the countrified stretch of dyke around Brunswick Point at the mouth of the Fraser’s south arm. This tidal marsh, not far from the Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary, attracts a great variety of winter migrants, and the bay itself can be a fascinating sight when frozen into humps and ridges.
Put on your hat and gloves, climb up onto the dyke and set off west along Canoe Passage. Approaching Brunswick Point, you will see the remains of one of the oldest salmon canneries on the river. As you turn south, there is brackish tidal marsh, growing rushes, cattails and various sedges on the seaward side, and agricultural land on your left. Groups of swans and snow geese can often be seen at the edge of the open water, or flying to and from Westham Island. Herons and marsh hawks hunt along the fields and ditches; red-winged blackbirds call from the cattails."
