Further to Ron's post here are directions to the area in question.
Directions to the mouth of Duffins Creek:
From the 401 in Pickering exit at Brock ROAD, go south to Bayly. Turn
left. Turn right onto Squires Beach Road (first lights) and drive as far as
you can. The sewage treatment plant will be directly in front of you. Turn
left and follow the road to a stop sign. Turn left and follow the road to
the lake and park. Walk east along the waterfront trail to the footbridge,
which passes over the mouth of Duffin's Creek. You can view the marsh from
the bridge. You can also access this area from the foot of Westney road,
but I don't know the exact directions.
It might also be worthwhile checking out the north part Corner Marsh. You
will pass the entrance to this area as you follow the road to the lake.
