Kearney Lake Trails offers hikers the choices of walking Maskwa Loop and Popcorn Island Loop, featuring the beauty of Kearney Lake and its woodlands. A longer hike with more challenging terrain, hikers can enjoy the trail to Charlies Lake Loop, the Charlies Lake Look off or climb Paddlers Ridge with the reward of seeing Charlies and Kearney lakes at your feet from the top. In the spring hikers enjoy the many wildflowers in bloom including Lady's Slipper, Mayflower, Trillium, Pitcher Plant and native orchids. With a wide variety of birds, this series of trails is great for eager bird watchers who dont mind the climb up the steep slopes. In the summer many hikers cool off in the waters of either lake. In the fall the leaves change colour on Paddlers Ridge. In the winter Maskwas Loop and Popcorn Island Loop trails continue to be well traveled and hikers and snowshoers share the wider trails.
