This is were we got the best view of the Aurora. The lake was frozen, it was night time so didn't see much of the lake and it was -46. But the view of the Aurora at midnight was amazing.

This hike has lovely views but is challenging for anyone with weak or sore knees. Lots of rock scrambling and large up and down places. Need to take time and extra care with intentional foot placement.

This was the first of two hikes we did off the Ingraham Trail (which is the name of Highway #4). It was our first taste of the boreal forest and Canadian Shield and it did not disappoint. The rocky terrain, Jack Pines and various lichen...More

Spent 2 nights at Prelude Lake. Bruce at the gate house is very nice, stop in for a chat. Two great hiking routes, very interesting walk in camp sites. Fished from shore, not much luck. Quiet wilderness close to town.

Nice walking trails, some with vistas to take in. Locals make plenty of use of it. Various land from rocky, boggy and sandy. Free parking closer to the entrance. Park pass required to drive and park further than the park gatehouse.
