“Great backcountry hiking trail”

Queen Elizabeth II Wildlands Provincial Park
Attraction details
Reviewed 4 August 2013 via mobile

We went in at devils lake side road, closer to Minden. You can park at the devil's lake parking lot for free. You walk back down the road you came in from the parking lot a few hundred meters and there is a gravel road that goes off to the right. It does have small white signs on the trees that says ganaraska trail. You follow that for gravel road for a few minutes and the trail will be on the left hand side through the woods. The trail is marked with white blazes on the trees and rocks but you do have to look for them. You will cross over beaver dams as part of the trail. I don't recommend going after a big rain storm as the water is high at the one beaver dam especially. It has some great views and nice lakes along the way. We hiked for about 2 hours in and had a rest at a nice lake on the rocks (it reminded me of Algonquin park). The trail goes on for days, but we turned back at that point. The only thing I wish it had was a loop back so you don't have to take the same trail back that you came in on. But it's a good backcountry trial with nice views. I would do it again.
