Description

This particular trail will lead you down to the point between the east and west side of Spectacle Lake. There is plenty of good fishing and swimming all around if the weather is right for it.

Note that there are many off-shoots around and near Spectacle Lake. You can wander to find several good camping locations, but please be mindful to leave no trace and not to damage the vegetation.
