There is a gravel road called Sward Lake Road, which gets you to within 530 meters (853 feet) of the Northeast corner of the property.

The owner hasn’t been to the property in a couple of years, but mentioned that the last 530 meter section to the property will need some repairs in order to access the property.

Sward Lake Road is only accessable in the non winter months.



The current owner used to drive a truck into the property in the non-winter months.  It has been a while since someone has been to the property.

The owner said the last 530 meters of road to the property will need some work (grading and widening).

There is a gate along the access road.  We are in the process of obtaining the keys for this gate.

There is also a bridge that crosses Pearl River.  This river connects Sward Lake and Pike Lake.

We are waiting to confirm from the municipality of the condition of this bridge.
