The Crow Wing Trail is part of the Trans Canada Trail. It was used for the fur trade in the 1800's. Today connects communities using country roads, community parks, bush and pasture trails.
"We want visitors to experience nature here," says Georges Beaudry, owner of O'Roseau. "At night, when all the lights are out, we are alone in the world and can watch the stars in silence."

Located thirty minutes south of Winnipeg, St. Pierre-Jolys is a charming village on the banks of the Rat River. It was established in 1877 following an expedition led by Father Ritchot of St. Norbert, who recognized the value of the region’s fertile land.
One of the jewels of rural Manitoba known for its annual Frog Follies and its ever-popular frog jumping championship, St. Pierre-Jolys never misses an opportunity to celebrate its rich francophone heritage.
In addition to the Frog Follies held on the August long weekend, St. Pierre-Jolys also celebrates the spring “sugaring off” season. Come and indulge your sweet tooth at the St. Pierre Sugar Shack, the only place in Manitoba that produces real maple syrup. It is also a great opportunity to visit the local museum or chat with Francophones whose families go back a long way.
