near Desert Lake, Ontàrio (Canada)
A nice hike In Frontenac Provincial Park which has a bunch of trails available and was quite busy for a fall day. We chose the Dedication Trail North which took us by several beautiful lakes, trail is well signed and in good condition. There are boardwalks and bridges where required and mother nature provided us with a great display of the fall colours.
There are a couple of places to park, we chose the first lot at Arab Lake, Big Salmon Lake is an alternative. Both have portable toilets and there were also washroom facilities at the park office. Entry fee for our car was $14.50. Trail can be done in either direction and there are opportunities to extend the hike if you are eager.
Loads of nice scenery, undulating and twisting trail gives you lots of variety as you wind through a mixed forest and alongside several lakes of differing sizes. A really nice hike, can't wait to get back and explore more of this area.
Head to the right, follow signage for Salmon Lake and Dedication trail.
You'll take the right path on the way out and return on the path to your left.
First lake we encountered, was not labeled on my map.
We took the left path for North Dedication Trail. A right would take you on the south loop to Doe lake. Both trails loop back to the parking lot at Arab Lake.
A two plank bridge gets you across the mouth of the lake.
Straight ahead for Salmon Lake.
The largest lake we encountered, you hike along the south shore for 1.8 km.
Make a left to take the Corridor Trail back to Arab Lake parking. Turn right for access to a portable toilet and the parking lot at Big Salmon Lake.
