Pitt-Addington Marsh Wildlife Management Area

Pitt Lake located in Pitt Meadow's most northerly region is one of the largest tidal lakes in the world and its marshes originally served as a natural floodplain in the region. Today, a large network of dykes protect the farmland that lie south of the Pitt-Addington Marsh Wildlife Management Area which spans over 2,882 hectares of marsh, wetland and forest. The dykes have been converted into trails which are ideal for hiking and cycling which offer spectacular views of Pitt Lake and its surrounding mountains and many opportunities for birding and wildlife viewing.
