Sadly, a day-trip only.

The Wainfleet Wetlands hold a large set of quarries, one on each side of the road with a small bridge across them. You can park near the quarry and portage a short distance (10m) to the waters edge.

There is lots of wildlife here in the more desolate sections of the quarry. Normally on nice sunny days many young women are seen on the shores in bikini's

Sadly, a day trip only.

Surrounding the Wainfleet Wetlands Quarries are several hiking trails which run along the ridge of the two quarries. During your day hike you will come across many, many fossils here embedded in the rock.

The quarry has several trails which in winter are excellent for cross country skiing. However it is *not* advisable to ski on the quarry itself as the ice may be thin.
