HikingGreat!

My favorite hike in SK so far. Beautiful trails and outstanding views that take your breath away. We camped at Lower fishing lake and getting to this trail is a bit of a drive. The trails were clean and we'll kept, with tons of loops/ branching paths. Would've liked a lil more signage about what trail you're currently on, we brought our own map and still got turned around on an unmarked path. Best hike I've done all year!

Very poor (No) signage. Without the GPS compass on the App you would have no idea where to go. One very steep area with loose sand and rocks (footing treacherous even with athletic shoes). Large part of street portion is on the busy Lake Road with no sidewalk/trail. Walking through a campground and the nuisance ground was not relaxing.

Pretty relaxed trail has some ups and downs. We did the first section of the Boreal Trail. (Cold River to Sandy Beach Campground) Saw one bear on the trail but with some clapping it took off right away. We hiked to the second campsite on the trail(9.2km from the trail head) and had lunch. The campsites are well setup with a BBQ with benches, a bear food locker and pit toilet. All and all a great day.

Great trail to view the dunes and prairie landscape. Very nice in the fall with the Aspen leaves and the ground cover in full autumn colors. Bring water and wear a hat if it is a hot day.

Nice park to start, that’s about it. Walk through a campground, gravel pits, nuisance grounds, follow highway and then road along lake.

A very steep, loose gravel incline to start. Then a walk around town and by the lake. If you’re looking to get out for some exercise it works.

HikingGreat!

Fantastic hike! By Sask standards, it should definitely be labeled moderate. A lot of relatively short, but very steep inclines. That said though, it’s very much worth it. The lakes are beautiful. You don’t have to do the whole trail as there are multiple loop back points. Didn’t see any bears, but they’re definitely out there.

Lots of cacti on the north most trail. If hiking with dogs it may be a good idea to bring some foot wear for them.

Beautiful trail! The park has put a lot of work into it. It is very well signed and the detours due to some flooding were easy to find. Some sections have very little shade and long periods without water but all the sites are close to water access

RunningGreat!

Really nice casually trail. Can take the short or long loop - or both! Run them both often - forwards and backwards. Always very quiet. They keep me coming back. One of the bridges could use some attention.

Great trail with a couple camping sites located within. Well labelled. A little confusing at times as it has some short cuts. See my photos for a picture of the map!

Mountain biking

This is NOT a trail for the average biker!!! Single track with roots, rocks and stumps the entire way. Not sure why this is considered the best trail in the park - far from it!!! Some excellent scenery but on a bike you don’t get to enjoy it as you are too busy scanning the path for which 4 inch root you are going to hit. Would not recommend for biking. Period.

Hiking

This is a pleasant woodland trail that often runs along Kingsmere Lake. There are some nice vantage points and pretty sections of beach, but there are equal parts of plodding between, and sometimes over, a seemingly abnormal amount of downed trees have fallen over the years. The trail is nice enough, but nothing to write home about. I would 100% not recommend this trail for bikes. We met a couple bikes as we were hiking out and I have no idea how they would have navigated the large roots, stumps, downed trees, or the sharp inclines and declines including all of the above. I do not imagine it would be an enjoyable experience. The campsites (which include picnic tables and fire pit) are great and are supplied with firewood, with nearby food platforms and outhouses. Bugs weren't awful, but prepare for a moderate amount of mosquitos, particularly at boggy points in the trail. Many signs of blacks bears on the trail, but we only saw one over the course of the entire hike. Also spotted loons and a pine marten. If that sounds like your kind of thing, or if you are a Grey Owl aficionado, then this is the trail for you!

HikingBlowdownMuddyRocky

Did this trail solo a few days ago (early August) started at about 0630 the first morning from camp to beat the heat and made it to the point by 1030, explored, swam, relaxed and cowboy camped (recommend) at the point. Started early again the following morning. If you think your gonna do a back country trail and not get wet feet you may be disappointed on this one. Bugs weren't too bad at this time. Water sources were minimal the first 8km of the trail. Carried 3L and was fine, filled up at the first camp, swam and was good from there. Some of the boardwalks are falling apart but the park is aware and fixing fall of 2020. 10/10 for views and a fun hike along the Canadian shield!

Great trail, very scenic and trail was well maintained! Benches along the trail to the dunes, but no benches to stop and rest on the trail back. Took about 2.5-3 hours in total including time we spent at the dunes themselves. Lovely hike, other than sandy spots along the trail it is a moderately easy hike. I recommend!

This is not a trail for someone who isn't prepared for an incredible amount if mosquito bites, wet feet and to take their time. Very very buggy. 7 of us went through our entire supply of bug spray (1-2 cans or bottles per person so around 12-14 cans total over 2 days). While a beautiful trail, it is a slog. many of the boardwalks need maintenance, a bog every kilometer or so, multiple steep incline and decline successions one after another and limited access to water. I carried 6L on the way to the point and ran out just about 1K before arriving at the point. I had sumitted 2 mountains the weekend prior to attempting this trail and while I am not the slimmest, fittest or fastest hiker this trail took almost 11 hours to get to the point and damn near broke me. Use caution and be deliberate and methodical with your approach.
