The hiking train around Frame Lake is perfect. It is about 7kms, enough for the more portly among us, and adequate for the more adventurous. The train offers some lovely views of the city, and balances between simple, boardwalk-stlye passage, and clambering over the pre-Cambrian shield make the train interesting. The weather was perfect, a circumstance that might not be... More

We started out from near the Explorer Hotel, and found suddenly the pavement ends half way around - route finding becomes a challenge at that point no/little signage...in Summer the black flies and mosquitos are horrible - be warned! Nice views but do it outside of bug season!

My daughter was in her fiinal month of pregnancy and staying in Yellowknife awaiting birth at the local hospital. We walked and walked various parts of Yellowknife during the two week wait. Frame Lake Trail is a gem in the city. We loved hiking the main trail and also going on the more rustic parts of the trail (over large... More

We are visiting family in Yellowknife and have spent many enjoyable hours walking the trail along Frame Lake. Lots of waterfowl throughout the lake and some great scenery. The trails are accessible for everyone.

This trail is very beautiful! I saw lots of birds and wilderness scenery. The trail is kept up very well and was not muddy. It is paved in some areas and in other areas, you hike on rocks. It is an easy hike around the lake.

Great trail, beautiful views, good for the heart, better to commute on the trail to work too! Took us about 55mins to walk around the whole thing on the snow in -39C and we loved it. Hope to run it in the spring and summer too, but it's much more rocky and slower going at parts. Nice plan is to... More

I love this trail. It is wonderful for joggers/ walkers. I jog this trail quite often. So many people use this trail. On any given day you can talk along this trail and you will be sure to pass someone out walking along the trail as well. I also pleased we have this trail in our City and have access... More

A lake and trail just next to downtown, you can start by visiting the Northern Frontier Visitor Center and / or Prince of Wales Heritage Center and then hiking around the lake, you may also select to walk around the lake or go to Bristol Monument
