We were able to hike part of the Anderson Lake Pathway this week. It was late in the evening so we were unable to hike the entire trail system so we tackled the portion to the North of Flacks Lake.
What a beautiful trail! It meanders through a mixture of upland and lowland forests with immense White Pine, Jack Pine, and Hemlock spread throughout. We didn’t see any wildlife other than a few songbirds, but the scenery was amazing. Flacks Lake is beautiful, as are the marshes that border it to the North and West.
This is an interpretive trail with interesting signage. The trail itself is not difficult to navigate and is well defined with the exception of one section where cutting has resulted in a few treetops that have obscured the trail. I have a feeling that those will be removed before long.
If you are looking for an enjoyable day hike, give Anderson Lake Pathway a try. The trail is also groomed for cross-country skiing in the winter months. A recreational passport is required to use the trail, but there is no entrance fee.
