Jakes Landing to Merrymakedge Beach
3km one way - 60mins - hiking/biking - some steep hills
This is a multi-use trail so watch for bikers. The trail begins at the far end of the Jakes Landing parking lot, and climbs steeply through scattered granite boulders. This is a good place to watch for pileated woodpeckers. Enveloped in trees, you will pass by the viewing tower exhibit and continue to Merrymakedge playground. From here the trail follows the lakeshore, flat and easy, to the canteen and the beach at Merrymakedge.
