From the HWY 11/17 junction near Seymour Street, head southeast on HWY 11 for about 57 km (35.4 mi) until you reach the Village of South River. Turn left at Ottawa Street. Continue onto Chemical Road. Turn right after approximately 20 km (12.4 mi) just before the Park entrance. The trail is located about 1.3 km (0.81 mi) up the road, across from the lake on the right hand side, though signage may not be visible.

The vast network of trails we celebrate exist on the traditional lands and waterways of the Anishinaabe people within the territory protected by the Robinson Huron Treaty of 1850 and Williams Treaties of 1923.
