Pinehurst Lake Conservation Trails
Pinehurst Lake is a nine-hectare (23-acre) kettle lake formed by a single piece of ice. The nine-hectare (23-acre) lake has a sandy beach and is surround by mature Carolinian forest. During the summer months (April-October) Pinehurst Lake is transformed into a summer playground offering camping, swimming, fishing, boating, picnicking and hiking opportunities. In the winter, Pinehurst is transformed into one of the premier snowshoe and ice-fishing facilities in the region. Pinehurst Lake is open for cross-country skiing with 12 kilometres of ski trails, groomed and trackset. Ski rentals are available and Pinehurst specializes in renting skis to school groups that use the area by reservation.
