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

This is a hike around the lake in town past the Museum and around. The hike is nicely marked and you feel like you are out in the bush yet so close to town.

We had a wonderful warm and calm day for our hike. We took our time so we could take in the views and also talked to some locals along the way. We found the rock that we hiked over interesting and beautiful as well as the birch trees which were turning colour. If we had time later in the week... More

I had city shoes on and assumed that the entire trail was essentially a city pathway. When we got to the boulders, we thought we'd just climb over them and be back on the path...sure, about an hour later! My shoes had rubber soles, so they were OK, but did not bargain for a hike but only a city walk.... More
