Weekend fun with Ryan, we got the Rover out to do Rover things… 😀 I have been yearning to get out and hit a trail, although at the same time, I know it won’t be what I enjoyed in Colorado (frankly nowhere else in the world measures up), BUT Ontario and its plethora of lakes and forests has lots to offer.
I took the opportunity to head out with my youngest (Ryan) to explore Puzzle Lake Provincial Park. And I have to say we were not disappointed.
The area is an outdoorsmen’s heaven… there is no shortage of small lakes, trails and fishing spots. Oh and there are tons of primitive camping locations!! Absolutely beautiful. On our outing, we found an old farm-house to explore plus we made it to the lake – which had several campsites and a canoe launch. AND the views were nice…
So the drive… as this is the start of fall the leaves were getting ready to turn and fall… which made for some nice scenery along the drive. And along the trail too.
The trail.. .the Rovery bits… 😉 Well it was not as challenging as some of the other trails we’ve done, however it was not a fire road either. I would rate it as a 2 out of 5 only because of the water. There was a significant amount of water and this added some level of ‘stress’ as each spot had to be surveyed to ensure it was passable. Some were considerably deep too…
Overall the road / drive and scenery added up to a great day! If you are in the area of Kingston / Ottawa I would recommend taking a drive out this way. Even bring your kayak or canoe and BBQ make a day or weekend of the trip.
I know we will be back here again!!
