Grass trails with multiple camping points. Cabins are also included on the trail (stocked with firewood) if you prefer. Views of Epinette Creek along the way. Final destination is Jackfish Lake. Permits required for overnight use (available through Carberry office 204-834-8800 Trails mostly grass with some sand. The grass is maintained well. Jackfish Lake can be hard to access due to debris upon arrival.
The trail was very well groomed. Firewood was well stocked and the cabins looked very nice. The water at cabin 4 was great though I would recommend taking something to flavour the water from cabins 2 and 3.
Access to Jackfish Lake would have been nice. Deadfall blocked the views and the area surrounding was very marshy. The short trails to the lake seemed not to be maintained despite great upkeep everywhere else.
