good easy hike

I walked to Sandy Beach = 13 km in, Grey Owl's Cabin is another 7 km from there. Total trail distance there and back is 40km.

Incredibly well maintained trail; This hike is beautiful and takes you through a number of scenic locations and has a few well equipped campsites (with outhouses) along the way

Beautiful trail with great views of the lake!

Beautiful trail. It’s well marked, took approx 1 hr 20 minutes with slow strolling pace. You get a glimpse of the lake but the trail doesn’t go right to it.

Beautiful short hike. Love the tamaracks and the interpretive elements are great for kids - don’t forget your pamphlets at the beginning of the hike.

Beautiful, easy trail to hike.

Great hike awesome views of the lake. The sand cliffs and then the purple sand beach are really something!!

Beautiful area. Usually quite busy due to proximity to town of Waskesiu.

Due to the proximity to water and the grassy trail, expect mosquitoes!! Kind of a boring hike. Would be nice if the park maintained the remainder of the old freight trail that would take you all the way up to the south end of Waskesiu Lake. Seems like they have stopped maintaining many of the trails along the scenic highway.....likely financial reasons.

A very nice trail with great views of the creek. The park needs to update their interpretive guides.

It’s a park maintainance service road. Nice riding. Some decent scenery and the end point at Crean Lake is an absolutely awesome view!!

Awesome trail. You get to see all kinds of ecosystems that exist in the park, from aspen forest to jack pine forest to bogs to open meadows with natural grasses and wildflowers. A challenging hike with steep hills. Some great views also. There is a connector trail that takes you into the Anglin Lake ski trails. Also very nice.

Parks crews have done some work on the trail this year leaving behind dirt sections that get very muddy and slippery when wet. This was to remove old staircases. Hopefully they replace them or put down some gravel as these steep sections can be very dangerous! Beautiful trail though!

Ride this one counterclockwise. Some fun downhills that way. For a good workout ride from the beach lot up to fisher trail, then take the yellow loop over to the blue loop and down to beach again. A lot of fun.

Great trail to test your skills. Roots and rocks on a portion, some wet areas near the lake and some nice downhills on the second half.

Très sympa. Paysage époustouflant arrivé en haut qui vaut la peine car la randonnée n’est même pas trop fatiguante! Nous avons même découvert un monticule de terre avec des fossiles!

Nice trail. Take mosquito spray and bear spray. Met a family who turned around because they saw a bear. We didn’t run into one, but saw lots of recent bear activity. Be cautious, make noise and enjoy Saskatchewan’s beautiful landscape

Finally able to complete this trail after getting turned back by a bear years ago! My son and I were able to do it in 2 hours...but we might have been spurred on by the mosquitoes!Great hike!

Another example of the fine work the Parks Canada staff do to preserve nature in its purest form. I was lucky to hit a windy day, which kept the bugs away. Only found blueberries around the Northend campsite, but ate a lot of raspberries along the trail. Left the trailhead parking lot at 3pm, arriving at 7:30pm and overnighting at the northend,, hiked the 3.8kms to Grey Owl’s cabin in the morning, then hiked out. Probably wouldn’t do that again as you have to keep a steady pace to do it in the day and a half I had available. Ideally, I think I would backpack all my gear to Sandy Beach, overnight, take a day pack to go to grey owls and back the next day, overnight again, then hike out. One would have more time to swim and soak up the solitude!! Highly recommend!

Great hike, but be prepared as Sask winds are not nice on top!
