Location: Riding Mountain National Park
Distance: 4.2km (round trip)
Ecosystem types: Boreal Forest, Marsh, Lake
This trail passes through gorgeous dense and lush forests as it makes its way to the serene and tranquil Lake Kinosao. The forest opens up shortly before reaching the lake as you walk across a wooden boardwalk through a marshy area and provids lovely views of the lake to your right. Beautiful reflections from the surrounding coniferous forest can be seen on the calm waters of Lake Kinosao, providing some amazing photo opportunities. There is a small dock and a wooden bench at the lake, which makes a nice place to enjoy a snack and admire the views and pretty surroundings.
The trail is easy and relatively flat with only a few gradual slopes. There are lots of large tree roots along the trail, so make sure to watch your step.
