DISCOVER THE SECRET
Welcome to Pinawa!
Pinawa is a unique little town nestled in the boreal forest on the banks of the Winnipeg River. We have many wonderful things to offer visitors to our area. There are hiking and biking trails for the summer and skiing and snowmobile trails for the winter enthusiast. There is fishing, hunting and a first class 18-hole golf course.
Once you reach Pinawa you are there! You cannot drive through town and continue on to your next destination. The only way out is from whence you came. That is what makes our town so special. You are here because you want to be here and we all welcome you to come visit this special place. You are sure to love it!
To celebrate the coming of the new millennium our community, with the help of many volunteers, designed and constructed a sundial - The Pinawa Heritage Sundial.

The Pinawa Heritage Sundial is located in the centre of town adjacent to the Ironwood Trail. The Ironwood Trail is an interpretive trail that winds along the banks of the Winnipeg River as it makes its way through town. At one end the trail crosses an old diversion dam and connects to the Pinawa Channel Heritage Walk. This trail takes you to the Suspension Bridge that crosses the Pinawa Channel. These trails make up a portion of the Trans Canada Trail and are a few of the many sights available to visitors coming to the Eastern Manitoba region.
Another major community project was the completion of the Pinawa section of the Trans Canada Trail. This project included the construction of the Pinawa Suspension Bridge across the Pinawa Channel. Located near the west approach of the Suspension Bridge a structure was built to shelter visitors who come to visit the Bridge and walk the trail - The Pavilion.
