Off The Beaten Path - Hikes and Explorations in the Brandon Region
Rosedale Farm Trail
The Trail is located 5 miles west of Eden on the Rosedale Farm.
This ¾ section piece of land was rehabilitated during the 1960’s as a demonstration project for soil conservation in farming practices. In 1977, the WWCD Board assumed responsibility for the farm.
In 2010, a group of local citizens established an all-season foot trail through the farm property. The trail passes through a variety of vegetation and topography and offers stunning views to the east of the Riding Mountain Escarpment. Interpretive signage helps to explain the history and features of the farm.
It is obvious that the site is well cared for. The trails are well marked, the rules are clear.
It is no coincidence that we found not a single Bud Lite can on our hike, and the signs havn't been vandalized by shotgun fire.
Well placed benches and a well-cared for outhouse.
A sturdy picnic table - near a great lookout.
A great variety of trees.
A variation of the "corduroy road"
