Route Description for Moose Lake Hike

From the parking lot, head towards the public washrooms and find the trail behind the washrooms that leads towards the lake. You will see a dock and boat launch area that day-use paddlers will be using. Stay right hugging the shore, following signs for Moose Lake.

After 0.3 km of parallelling the shore, you will pass the Warden’s compound equipped with a cabin and dock. 0.2 km from the warden’s dock, you will come to a junction. Stay right following the Moose Lake sign. The trail to the left stays on the shoreline. 700 m from this junction you will reach Moose Lake. The trail wraps around the lake’s shore for 100 m before heading back into the woods for another 100 m before reaching a junction.

Stay right at this junction and hike for 1.0 km before you reach the Bald Hills trail on an old fire road. Take a right and finish the final 300 m to the parking lot along this road.
