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.

Spend a day or plan an overnight adventure in this hiking and canoeing paradise of deep, blue lakes, sandy beaches, granite outcrops and lush green forests.
