Narcisse Snake Dens Trail, Narcisse, MB R0C 2H0, Manitoba



Awesome spot to see non-venomous snakes during the summer season. Entry is free. Thinking of a trip to see the world famous red-sided garter snakes of Narcisse? It's about a one hour drive north from Winnipeg to the Narcisse Snake Dens. Sunny days are always best for snake viewing. There's a large gravel parking lot and the trails throughout the site are well-packed crushed limestone. Washrooms are available, but primitive (outhouses / privies). Bring your own food and drink, or you can stop in one of the towns along the way to eat. Water from the pumps on site is not potable, but suitable for washing or cooling off tired feet. Bring sunscreen as there isn't much shade along the trails. The snakes return to the denning area from their summer feeding grounds in late August and September. If you can't get out in the spring, try making the trip in autumn. Snake numbers can be quite impressive on warm sunny days until the end of September. Dogs on leash permitted.

Mating Season begins End of April, thats when the Snakes surface. During Winter you wont be able to see them, since they are underground.
