New Year’s Hike at Frontenac Provincial Park

2015 brought me to a lot of new places and experiences thanks to someone I know who loves the great outdoors. Taking a hike (literally) was one of them. I had no idea there was so much to see and do outside in our area. I love spending this time connecting with nature and slowing things down for a while. In the past year I have hiked, snowshoed and rode a mountain bike on trails (I never saw myself doing that one!). 2016 is shaping up to be the same and I am excited to try winter camping and I might even ski!

To start the new year right on January 3rd we hiked at Frontenac Provincial Park in some beautiful freshly fallen snow. We had been to Frontenac for a hike back in October and it wasn’t one of my favourites but winter has given me a whole new appreciation for Frontenac. Here are some photos from the Arab Lake Gorge Loop and the Doe Lake trail.

The Arab Lake Gorge Loop is 1.5 km of beauty and boasts an extensive boardwalk.

Doe Lake Trail is a nice hike too. This loop skirts two beaver ponds, climbs to a lookout over Doe Lake and returns along the shore of Otter Lake. The trail explores some of the landforms found in the southern zone of Frontenac Provincial Park.
