paradise.

Nature beckons in the Land O’Lakes with fall fishing, bird watching and hiking. This is the
perfect time of year to go outside and explore the magnificent beauty of this area.

Frontenac Provincial Park
Explore Frontenac’s 5,355 hectares on the southern edge of the Canadian Shield. This beautiful park is open all year and has 48 interior campsites.
Canoe routes are available through 22 lakes and there is over 100 km of looped backpacking and hiking trails. This is a wonderful place to fish, view wildlife, hike or enjoy the water.

The K&P Trail is a 63-km dedicated off road trail that makes for perfect fall cycling, hiking and even equestrian activities. No motorized vehicles are allowed on the gravel pathway that is suitable for bikes designed for light off road conditions. It runs from north of Kingston to Tichborne and actually connects to the existing Catarqaui Trail at Harrowsmith.

Watch as nature reveals itself on the beautiful Cataraqui Trail – cycling is encouraged on this 103 km trail that stretched from Smiths Falls to Stratcona.

Cyclists and hikers are welcome to explore wilderness, lakes, wetland, fields and more as the cooler weather settles in and the bugs become less of a nuisance. Unique vantage points along the Cataraqui Trail make for unforgettable fall foliage views.

Corn turns into the newest family-friendly adventure on Wolfe Island every fall, as a legendary maze is carved out of an entire field corn. The creative design at the Corn Maze on Wolfe Island in Land O Lakes features two mazes this year, as well as mid-point refreshments! Taking the ferry from Kingston the island adds to the fun of a day out in fall. After you find you way out of the maze, don’t forget to visit the animals on the farm.

Want to make the experience even more intriguing? Ask about reserving a spot in a flashlight night event. Imagine trying to navigate the maze after the sun goes down!

Several routes even take in the water surroundings at Frontenac Provincial Park Kayaks and paddleboards are also available at the start of some routes!

Frontenac Provincial Park also paddling routes, with nearly 50 interior campsites, so
excursions don’t have to end at dusk. Make this a summer to explore on the water!

Gould Lake Conservation Area located just outside of Sydenham in Frontenac County is a natural summer haven. This day use area begs to be discovered with more than 20 km of trails across rolling and rugged terrain. The wetland, woods and shoreline are perfect for wildlife viewing along the way. Another neat feature is the throwback to another time when mica mines operated near Gould Lake.

In fact, a number of old pits and a large boiler can still be seen on the Mica Trail on the Conservation Area property and mica I easily spotted sparkling from rock faces or along the trails edge! It’s for this reason that the Frontenac Arch Biosphere named the Mine Trail Loop at Gould Lake as an Amazing Place – a special place of historic and cultural significance. Cool off at the sandy pristine beach area after a day of hiking!
