Armit Lake is a largest lake (~2,500ha) in the Porcupine Mountain Provincial Forest. The lake is located along an old haul road, and is most commonly accessed by snowmobile in the winter months. It is not recommended to hike this trail in the summer because of distance, and damage created by ATVs, however is still possible. Because of possible logging operations, be sure to contact the nearest government office for updated information before using this road. This trail is not maintained, and therefore fallen trees may complicate passage. The lake is known for becoming extremely rough from high winds so be sure to check the forecast before going on your trip. Armit Lake is home to very targetable walleye, northern pike, whitefish, and burbot populations.
