Hiking & Walking Trails in Robert's Arm

Robert's Arm is a unique little town. This is not only because it lies beside Crescent Lake, a majestic body of water which boasts picturesque surroundings, Robert's Arm is unique because of what lives in this exquisite Lake. This town has its very own monster, known as "Cressie" , Green Bay's Loch Ness Monster.

Roberts Arm is located in southwestern Notre Dame Bay, 23 km from the Trans Canada Highway. By the Mid 1950's, Roberts Arm had developed into a local service centre. Local tradition says the community was first named "Rabbits Arm" by people from nearby islands who visited each fall and winter to trap and cut timber. In the 1911 Census, the name of Roberts Arm was being used. Local tradition says its name was changed to honor a prominent resident, John Roberts.
