Algonquin Park – Fall 2022…Trails

We hiked a lot this trip, so many trails in this Park, it’s hard to do them all in one trip. But we try.

Big Pines Trail is one that we hiked this trip, we hadn’t done it for years so thought we would refresh our memory. It was only about 3 kms so not a long hike.

Some photos from some other trails we did…

Below is the Cache Lake Historic site. There is a short trail with interpretive signs telling the history of the railroad and the Highland Inn which used to be to the right of the parking lot. It must have been quite something to see! It was a year round resort in use from 1908 to 1957, built by the Grand Trunk Railway. It was located near the park offices on the northern edge of Cache Lake, and was a focal point for the park for many years.

Well that’s it for today, I could probably write 20 or more Blog posts on the trails in Algonquin Park but not today! See you later…..

  1. It sure is beautiful here Susan. I liked that wooden boardwalk through the wooded area and then the next shot, the tree roots rising out of the earth, just waiting for a trip-and-fall. The reflections are gorgeous too. The beaver dams are so high and large. I could only glimpse that one beaver dam at Lake Erie Metropark as it was through the (remaining unchewed) trees. But it was not safe to get any closer as grass was over knee high, probably laden with ticks, even in colder weather and really uneven ground as well.

      1. I can’t say I have seen, nor been warned about leeches here – wow! The DNR, as well as the news, warn us about mosquitoes and West Nile as soon as it’s Spring and they hatch and about ticks as well. We had a local weatherman who many years ago got Lyme Disease and never worked again as he was so debilitated – tired and weak mostly, that he could not get out of bed. He was in Upper Michigan hiking when he was bitten by a deer tick. I heard his story long before I started my walking regimen and going into wooded areas so it does worry me. I don’t blame you for wearing the rubber boots – protect yourself from all these pests!
