Starrigavan Estuary Loop/Muskeg Trail

Save to my Account

At the end of Halibut Point Road is a short boardwalk trail through grassy Starrigavan Estuary. The amateur bird watcher will appreciate the wildlife thanks to the information provided along the walk. Extend this short but stunning outing to the Starrigavan muskeg trail. Cross the street at the end of the Starrigavan Estuary trail and follow the signs up a short incline through the rainforest. While you’re climbing, keep an eye out for a miniature fairytale world made of trinkets brought by locals. Then level out to an expanse of muskeg terrain surrounded by mountains. Go in the low light of sunset for a particularly eerily beautiful view.

Difficulty: Easy
Length: 1 hour for both parts
Access from city center: Drive-up
