Sharbot Lake Provincial Park: Trail Report

This relatively moderate effort and family friendly trail is only a 1.2 km loop with water views for over half of it. There is some elevation to the view point (where you can view both lakes), and is best enjoyed if hiking clockwise.

Suggested Stops

Ummm, baby food anyone?!?! Judge if you must, by these food packets are a lifesaving hiking hack. So that happened. Then it was straight to The Hungry 7 is Perth for all-the-food. You can never go wrong with this place. Looks like a regular dinner, and yet, the food is incredible. Gourmet worthy.
