Description & Services

Trail Rating Easy
Information Directions: From the Bedford Highway, turn up Kearney Lake Road. About 0.4 km past the Highway 102 overpass, turn left onto Hamshaw Drive. Take the first right onto Saskatoon Avenue. Go 0.8 km to the end of this street and pass through the entrance posts to the Maskwa Boat Club. After the posts, park in the gravel parking area on the left. Stand with your back to the road you entered on and walk forward towards the back right corner of the gravel area, past the two driveways on your right. The path starts directly to the left of the ‘do not enter sign’ by the second driveway. 
Note: Unfortunately, the Masqua Boat Club, which seems to control the parking lot in front of the trail entrance, currently has the parking area blocked. The only solution is to park at the entrance gate along the road on the one side. 
Length of trail: 1.2 km return  
About the trail: This is a simple, somewhat rocky, trail that winds along Kearney Lake through a mixed forest along the lakeshore.
