Walking Trails

Dixonville Community Forest

A magical gem of Boreal forest with easy access awaits you only 600 metres off of Highway 35. The entry to the forest trail is marked by a large sign with flags and is adjacent to a footbridge. Cross over the bridge (beware of the old troll that may still be lurking) and you are onto the trail.

The majority of the trail is a gravel surface and while not suited for a wheelchair, it is mostly flat and level. The trail is approximately 1.5 kilometres long and offers a great way to stretch your legs while taking in the sights, sounds, and smells of a typical boreal forest. OHV use is not permitted.

Leddy Lake

Leddy Lake offers a scenic experience that isn't too far off the grid, as it is located just a few minutes north of Sec. Highway 986 on Township Road 854.

Notikewin Provincial Park

Completely immerse yourself in nature and unplug at the Notikewin Provincial Park! While the trek to the park may deter you,  as it is located 35 kilometres north of Manning, the experience is 100% worth it! Take in the sights of densely packed forest and the sounds of birds. This family friendly trek will also lead you to where the mighty Peace River and the Notikewin river meet. 

Twin Lakes Provincial Park

Figure Eight Lake Provincial Park

Bask in nature and the beauty of the forest on this 3.7 kilometre loop around the lake! The Figure Eight Lake trail is perfect for bird-watching and is family friendly!
