Desert Lake - Rideau Trail
From Desert Lake Road to Salmon Lake Road, turning left it follows the road with Pearkes Lake on the right, crosses a bridge over Otter Lake and reaches the entrance to Frontenac Provincial Park. The Rideau Trail Association is a non-profit organization and a founding member of Hike Ontario.
Its purpose is to preserve and maintain a hiking trail from Kingston to Ottawa. Its registered trademark is a red-orange isosceles triangle; these triangles are used to mark the main trail (to distinguish the two directions, Kingston-bound trail markers carry yellow tips). In addition to the main trail, there are a number of side trails which are marked by blue triangles.
