Abes and Essens Lake Trail
The Abbes and Essens trail features three loops; one of 4, 9 and 17 km. Make this an overnight hike and camp at one of the five campsites along the trail! Long a favourite destination for painters and photographers, this park north of Napanee is renowned for Mazinaw Rock.
This 1.5-kilometre sheer rock face rises 100 m above Mazinaw Lake, one of the deepest lakes in Ontario, and features over 260 native pictographs – the largest visible collection in Canada.
