Grass trails with multiple camping points. Cabins are also included on the trail (stocked with firewood) if you prefer. Views of Epinette Creek along the way. Final destination is Jackfish Lake. Permits required for overnight use (available through Carberry office 204-834-8800). Trails mostly grass with some sand. The grass is maintained well. Jackfish Lake can be hard to access due to debris upon arrival.

I've been on different sections of this trail every October long weekend from the time I was 13 to 20 years old. We either hike in from the parking place and camp at the third cabin or drive to Jackfish lake down the backroads that you can only find if someone shows you (and you have a truck). The cabins get very toasty so are wonderful to warm up in. It's incredibly beautiful in the fall and I love hiking these trails when the weather is just starting to cool down and the leaves are turning.

A great trail for testing out a multi-day backpacking trip. Multiple cabins are spread out throughout the trail, firewood is available, water pumps (boil for drinking) and you also have outhouses. The Newfoundland Loop is about 12kms so to hike to Jackfish Lake in one day is a 20km hike. You get to hike along a ridge line and there is surprising elevation for being in the Spruce Woods area. Definitely worth checking out.

Easy trail for a 2-day hike, or loop can be completed in a day. Access to Jackfish Lake is not very good, and first cabin was full when we visited, so bring a tent if visiting on a weekend.

Trails were nicely groomed. Signage was good. Definitely an enjoyable experience.

The trail was very well groomed. Firewood was well stocked and the cabins looked very nice. The water at cabin 4 was great though I would recommend taking something to flavour the water from cabins 2 and 3. Access to Jackfish Lake would have been nice. Deadfall blocked the views and the area surrounding was very marshy. The short trails to the lake seemed not to be maintained despite great upkeep everywhere else.
