Sunday March 15, 2020 1:30 pm - Snowshoe Hike. Today, Mashkinonje has 35 kms of hiking trails that cross bedrock outcrops to the peatlands, beaver ponds and the scenic West Arm of Lake Nipissing. Lake Nipissing Fishing is fantastic! The first cuts east through the woods, while the other continues to the beach. For those coming to the French River area via Highway 69 South, the ever-lengthening four-lane is making the trip faster and faster. Local history buffs will likely enjoy visiting Mashkinonje Provincial Park just to stop and check out the ruined cabin, said to have been occupied decades ago by an American draft dodger. Since we aren’t paddlers, we’ve never used its facilities, but we do know where it is — approximately halfway between Memquisit Road and the Loudon Peatland Access Point, on the east side of the highway. Mashkinonje Provincial Park is officially a non operating park, but thanks to The Friends Of Mashkinonje it still has a lot to offer. There are only two marked lookout points on this trail, but many more unmarked beautiful views. The park is one of the best outdoor destinations in the French River and West Nipissing areas. Those visiting Mashkinonje Provincial Park should beware of poison ivy growing in the bushes along the beach! The Friends of Mashkinonje is a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to:1) carrying out environmental protection and preservation of the Park and its trails. This is a larger beach with a designated campfire pit and more space on land for kids and pets to play. Mashkinonje was designated as a provincial park in 1963. Mashkinonje is in the West Arm of Lake Nipissing, not far west of the mouth of the French River. The trail is easy, and the loop is only about 1.5 kmkilometres long, but please beware of poison ivy on this trail! This short and easy trail connects Coastal and Atakas Trails, creating a loop. For those contemplating visiting Mashkinonje Provincial Park, maps, including trail descriptions, are available at many lodges and retail locations in the French River and West Nipissing areas. The Friends of Mashkinonje is a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to: There are 5 trails classified as easy, 3 moderate and 2 difficult. There is now an overpass, so there will soon enough be an exit to Highway 64, with a name and number. The junction to Atakas Trail is over a kilometre from the Samoset junction. We invite you to come, hike and learn about the wonders of our wetlands. Just north of Samoset Road on the west side of the highway, the Blandings Access Point has a large parking lot, washroom facilities, an information board and park map, and a guestbook. The Pebble Beach Trail loop is about 3.5 kmkilometres long, and easy to moderate in difficulty. Sometimes, a space has been cleared on the side of the road in front of the entrance to the Blandings parking lot. The junction from Atakas provides two directions to Martin Pond. Provincial Highway 64 disects the park. Upo Marsh Circuit Hike: Photo Journal of a Korea Wetland Keeper, 10 Hikes In Korea You Will Absolutely Love.
