Twelve thousand years ago, during the Ice Age, Eastern Manitoba was completely covered beneath a glacier. The ensuing glacial lake, Lake Agassiz, covered the province. The soil is still a reminder of its ancient beaches but is now covered with a rich forest of mixed hardwoods and majestic pine trees. During spring and summer, wild strawberries, blueberries, and mushrooms abound along with the natural wildlife.
Sandilands is situated below Suicide Hill, the second highest point above sea level in Manitoba. The countryside is ideally suited for hiking, cross country skiing, mountain biking, and snowmobiling. Trails are nestled within the surrounding forest and are mapped out and maintained by the Provincial Government.
