Whitestone Lake Recreational Trail

Whitestone

Description

The Whitestone Lake Recreational Trail makes a 2.9 km loop through a diverse mixed forest with towering hemlock and vibrant oak trees. Wear sturdy footwear for the steep climb to a lookout and trail sections where the surface may be loose.  Allow 2-3 hours to complete the loop.

The forest is a shared resource available for a variety of wildlife, including bears, deer and beavers. Hikers and snowshoers may be joined by ATV enthusiasts and hunters. Sections of the trail with ATV traffic may be muddy in the spring.

Caution is required and bright clothing is recommended during the open hunting season on the Whitestone Lake Recreational Trail from October to December each year.
