About the Trail
The 140 km Quetico Trail joins the Omimi Trail and travels through Quetico Provincial Park, a wilderness park that is world renowned for back woods camping and canoeing.
The Quetico Trails travels from Cache Bay at the southern park entrance and continues through the center of the park to the north, at Pickerel Lake.
From Pickerel Lake there is a small loop to connect to the park visitor center at French Lake.
The route then returns west to Batchewaung Bay and continues north to the Park boundary at Nym Lake joining with the Maukinak Trail and Atikokan.
Always check with local contacts, provincial parks, and weather reports to confirm conditions.
