Steep Rock Limestone Cliffs
One of the most photographed sites in Manitoba, these rugged limestone cliffs are found on the shores of Lake Manitoba. Along the shoreline of the cliffs, if the water is low, you’ll discover caves to explore, formed by the waves washing into the limestone, eroding away the rock over millions of years.These same powerful waves crashing along the shoreline, have eventually worn some of these larger rocks into a beach of stones of all colours –shades of blue, green, red & black sparkle in the bright Interlake sunshine. A magnificent carpet of Manitoba crocus blankets the top of the cliffs annually,welcoming spring along with the Red-sided garter snakes sunning themselves.New interpretive signage and trails to walk (see “Hitting the Trails”). Grab a rock seat, watch the final golden rays of sun reflecting in clear blue waters.
Hear the call of a loon, watch a family of ducks’ splash playfully nearby, come explore this magical place.
Location/Directions: Hwy 6 to Moosehorn, west on PR 239. Signage to the cliffs at village entrance.
