Snowshoed on New Year’s Day. Perfect conditions after a fresh dusting of snow, and great for beginners for the mostly flat trail. Excellent view of the frozen lake, picturesque even in the winter. Easy to access with vehicle.

Beautiful trail. My dog enjoyed getting into some of the mud, but the trail was in excellent condition for myself and 2 friends. Lovely day and the Fall colours are just starting.

There are some mistakes at the official tracking routes. However at present it is a free trial. So I rate it three stars.

Easy trail. All around the picturesque small lake. Children will be interested in the mosses growing along the trail. Beautiful vegetation. A little hillier than average but definitely not strenuous. Proper footwear is suggested. Great also for snow shoeing. Extension are also available through upper Turtle by a fabulous waterfall. Hickory lake extension is amazing in the winter time. Enjoy

Did the trail with our 10 and 6 year olds, it is well marked and generally easy. Only watch out is the blue trail along Turtle Lake - one section at the far end, just before it merges with the red trail, went into the mud after an elevated boardwalk section collapsed. Stick to the red trail, and best to go around the lake in a clockwise direction as this allows you to see the collapsed section just before the trail divides, and go around it.

Turtle Lake loop/Clear Lake loop: This trail is a 4.7 km loop around Clear Lake and Turtle Lake. There is a floating bridge between the two lakes, but the loop can be completed without crossing the bridge. The trail is very well maintained and relatively flat with a few rolling hills.

Great little trail to hike. Secluded and beautiful views of the lake. Our dog loves running through the trail and jumping in the water.
