    Darren Woloshyn reviewed The Tennis Court/ Block 8 Trail

    10 months ago

    It’s a nice 1.7km trail that goes over granite rock ridges and through the forest. Not much signage. You can start at the tennis court/parking lot across from the campground or start from Block 8. A couple years ago they put a couple new yellow signs with black arrows so it seems they are still maintaining it but it hasn’t appeared on the Whiteshell Provincial Park Map since the late 1980’s. The trail doesn’t have a name unlike all the other hiking and self guiding trails in the Park. The trail is also fun to mountain bike on.

    Darren Woloshyn reviewed Hunt Lake Trail

    My friend and I hiked the whole Hunt Lake Hiking Trail on August Long Weekend including the backloop that goes into Ontario. We completed it in 7 and a half hours. 5 hours on the non-maintained back loop and 2.5 hours on the main trail. It's easiest to hike the trail counter clockwise since all the signs are in that direction and the trail is heavily grown in past the shelter. The first kilometre from the main trail to the visitor centre turnoff wasn't too grown in. After the visitor centre turnoff the trail was really grown in. You could barely tell there was a trail. You would have to look at the ground and see if there was a packed trail to know that was the trail. There wasn't a beaten trail going over the first beaver dam crossing so we were pushing through chest high grass and foliage. After the first creek crossing over the new log bridge the trail got worse. There is not much of a trail due to the new plant growth because of the logging that happened years ago. We just looked for ribbons and headed towards them. The trail crossed another beaver dam and went back into old forest and that's where we lost the trail for awhile. There wasn't much ribbons and there wasn't much sign of a trail so we just bushwhacked for a bit and saw a ribbon and got back on the trail. Just before the second crossing there was more logging so there wasn't much of a trail again. We just walked towards the old logging road which was just tall grass now. We could find where the trail went back into the bush and across the creek so we just bushwhacked to the creek and walked along it till we found the rocks that we could hop across to the other side since there was no bridge. We found the trail again on the other side of the creek and made our way to back into Manitoba across the border. The worst part of the trail would have to be the section between the border and the shelter. The trail was almost non existent. Very little ribbons and thick bush. The back loop is possible just very tricky and not well marked. You need a GPS track of the trail. I marked the trail a lot but there is still sections that I didn't mark because I didn't know if where we were walking was the actual trail. I used a whole roll of ribbon. We probably walked over 100 downed trees, lost the trail 10 times and had to stop and look to see where the trail was many times. The best time to do the loop would be in the fall or spring when there is no leaves or tall grass. The fly's and mosquito's were horrible, they would be constantly flying around your head.
