Route Description for Patricia Lake Hike

The Patricia Lake hike is a great loop for all abilities. It is not an officially maintained trail but sees enough traffic to be well packed and easy to follow. This is too bumpy for strollers or chariots, so make sure everyone is ready for a walk.

This is a must do hike if you are stopping at Patricia Lake. It doesn’t take long and takes you away from the main day use area for some solitude. The trail leads you along the lakeshore beyond the picnic area for 1.4 km before making a large u-turn into the forest and heading back.

You’ll be able to take in scenes of the lake as you make your way through the loop. Be careful, this trail can get very muddy.
