Nice drive through the back roads to arrive from Minden. Small parking lot then a short walk up the road to reach the dam on Hawk Lake. The log chute is wooden and the only one of its kind left in Ontario. It was used by loggers to help transport logs between lakes. There is a smaller replica at the Logger’s Museum trail in Algonquin Park. On the upper side of the dam, Hawk Lake is serene. Below, the water drops into the chute and blasts towards the river. The area has an information kiosk, a lovely picnic ground, a lookout over the river and hiking paths along the river and through the woods all of which present great photo ops

If you like country drives and small hikes, this is for you! The road to get there is picturesque, especially in the fall. Plan enough time to stop at the nearby stone Anglican church, the Stanhope museum and the Stanhope airport. The log chute is a wonderful piece of history, shooting logs from Algonquin park to the mills north of Lake Ontario- logs could take two years to make the trip! Adjacent to the site, you will see a map outlining the many hiking trails that are part of the Headwaters of the Trent-Severn Waterway. Many are short but well marked. I recommend visiting as a great family outing. (Drive past to the end of the road to the quaint Hawk Lake marina and store- treat yourself to an ice cream or butter tart!)

It is quite a drive from Haliburton but the way the GPS took us was quite scenic. The signs leading to it are small and easy to miss and from the road is kind of easy to miss and end up at the marina. All the information boards are in nice shape and quite informative. There's a small picnic area and washrooms. The chute is very cool, unfortunately a large bolder has fallen and damaged the chute on the far side so the water spills out and does not complete the chute. There's a donation box for maintenance and hopefully soon they can repair it. There's two trails for hiking as well.

I travelled here while visiting the area and was surprised by how enjoyable it was to see a log chute. It is located in a lovely area but rather far out with not a lot else to do in the area.
