Hiking/ Snowshoeing Trail Conditions

All hiking/ snowshoeing trails are currently OPEN. Do note that the bridge that crosses Oxbow Creek at the halfway point on the Beetle Lake trail has been removed and is pending replacement - hikers will not be able to cross the creek and must return via the same route to the beginning.

Watch for logging operations on the Crests of Kennisis Trail - follow signage.

The Acclimatization Trail on the Frost Centre Hiking Trails is closed to the south of the western junction with the Fire Tower Trail. This means that the Fire Tower Trail can no longer be done as a loop and hikers using the Acclimatization Trail must finish the 4km loop by following the Fire Tower Trail. Please obey posted signage and respect private property.


Forest Access Road Conditions

Forest Access Roads are closed for the season. Call the Algonquin Highlands Trails Office at 705-766-9033 for the most up to date condition report.

Forest Access roads are the responsibility of MNRF (705-286-1521).  Roads are to be used at own risk and are not inspected daily.  Tow truck operators will often refuse to enter such roads to provide assistance. It is the trippers responsibility to check on road conditions when planning their trip.
