We have literally 100’s of miles of excellent cycling trails through awesome lakes and forest country.
These roads were once logging roads, so they are really old gravel roads ideal for mountain biking, lots of scenery and wildlife, now only used by hunters during the fall and canoe people during the summer months.
Hiking & Backpacking
A 45 to 70 minute walk, marked with green trail signs and a variety of colored directional markers, signage viewed best while traveling in a counter clockwise direction. An excellent example of the boreal forest, the trail circles a large beaver pond, and has several areas to view the ecosystem the beaver creates. The trail is mostly on high granite ridges of jack pine forest, but travels through or by areas of black and white spruce, poplar, birch and ash. Many forest dwellers call this area home, from whitetail deer, red fox and beaver to a broad variety of bird life.
The trail is over some rocky ground, with some short uphill grades, suitable for all skill levels. For a sample, take a left at the first trail fork, and walk to Lookout (15 min.)
Anishinaabe Rock Paintings
Lake of the Woods Indian Rock Paintings & Pictographs
Long before the dark ages of Europe and the Renaissance, there were First Nations Aboriginal People living off the land in the Lake of the Woods area. You can see traces of the past among rocks with paintings and pictographs that range from 800 to 1200 years old.
The aboriginal people use to mix iron oxide rich soil with animal fat and ground flowers to produce reds and other colors. The paintings were used to guide traiders along the waterways.
Many of these painting can still be seen today if you look for them.
