White Lake Wilderness Trail Professional Review and Guide
"One the most challenging hikes found in this book, the White Lake Wilderness Trail is designed for those who enjoy a challenge. No compromises have been made on the route selection; if there is a hill nearby, you will be climbing it. Walking along the abandoned rail line to the end of Bayer Lake and returning permits a pleasant 5 km (3 mi) saunter suitable for any fitness level.
Turning onto the wilderness loop is only for the fit. Wear sturdy footwear for this one, and carry lots of water. Do not forget either binoculars or camera and expect sore muscles afterward. A volunteer association created this wonderful trail network. Their first project was the 14.5 km (9 mi) rail trail that is part of the Trans Canada Trail. In 2000, they opened the 9 km (5.5 mi) Admiral Lake Loop. The White Lake Wilderness Trail is the first section of a 20 km (12.5 mi) wilderness hiking trail that will travel into the 4558 ha (11,262 a) White Lake Wilderness Protected Area– one of 31 such sites designated by the province in 1998."
