This off the beaten track trail system is awesome for getting some fresh air and some alone time. The trails wind through small lakes, some which are actually fish bearing, and are very beautiful. There is a covered space for shelter if need be, and outhouses along the routes. The trail maps can be a bit confusing, so make sure... More

Very nice lake but not much of a beach! Some tables around and a bit of a trail from the parking lot. It is popular with locals and there are a lot of cabins around. Quite a drive from town and main highway though so not sure if worth it.

If you just want a relatively easy hike through the forest and near some wetlands, then this a good hike for you. There are not really any spectacular views, but you also don't have to work that hard on this hike, so I guess you get what you give. Accessibility in the winter can be a little questionable depending on... More

Eskers is well worth the drive out the Chief Lake road. The variety of terrain and the variety of scenery offer something for almost everyone. There are portions that are wheel chair accessible and others that can become a good workout. Interpretive signs and stations along the way offer some insight into the formation of the area, and once you... More

Of course, in front of me and behind me at my home is Esker's Provincial Park, for 15 years and counting. Something most remarkable is the hiking trail is clear and mapped to allow you to bail-out to the maintenance road many times in your journey, of which takes you straight back to the entrance of the parking-lot. Needn't overwhelm... More

This park has survived the Pine Beetle rather well. The signage and geography explanations remain clear. The portage docks appear to be new. The 12 km loop to Kathie Lake is a lovely moderate hike. We had the place to ourselves. There were signs of bears but we did not encounter any. There are shorter loops to walk and you... More

If you love a nice, well trodden path, I'd suggest Eskers Park. This climb is gentle and the scenery is beautiful. At one point you'll be able to look to your right and your left and see lakes on either side. There are docks on the lakes from which you can launch your kayak or fish from. The hike will... More

I am very impressed with this 4000 hectarce, or acre, park, but I think hecartar, nestled right against Ness Lake. It has free wood, woodstove, mountain bike and XC ski trails and kayaking of Circle Lake (with the crazy cabin at the back of the lake you would never know is here if you didn't kayak/canoe it). We have snowshoed,... More
