    <b>Trails:</b>

    ,b>Alfred Hole
    This classic intermediate 7K trail is located at the Alfred Hole Goose Sanctuary. It has a warm-up shack and outhouse about half way, with a lovely view over Jean Lake. The scenery and variety of terrain are awesome — up rocky hills and down into marshy areas, with many evergreen trees.

    <b>Inverness Falls</b>
    8K of classic intermediate loops with a warm-up shelter at the far end.

    <b>Jessica Lake</b>
    A classic intermediate 8K out-and-back trail runs from the Jessica Lake trailhead to Rainbow Falls. There are also two classic novice loops (“A” — 3.4K, “C” — 1.8K) from the Jessica Lake trailhead.

    <b>Otter Falls</b>
    This well-forested classic trail is a 3K loop that links to a 7K loop. It has a couple of intermediate hills on the return from a well equipped warm-up cabin that is shared with snowmobilers.

    <b>Pine Point Rapids</b>
    This is a scenic 6.5K intermediate classic trail located between Betula Lake and Nutimik Lake. It has a couple of intermediate hills on the way to a nice warm-up cabin at the open water of the Whiteshell River. There is also an optional short hike up to a peak that overlooks the area.

    <b>South Whiteshell Trail (Falcon Lake town to West Hawk Lake town to Falcon Ridge)</b>
    This is part of the Trans Canada Trail — over 40K of classic trails. It links the Rec Centre in Falcon Lake town to Faloma to West Hawk Lake town to Falcon Trails (Falcon Ridge Ski Area) — all to each other with many trail branch options. It is single track and double track classic skiing, and has a little of everything – gently rolling cruising sections, twisty dense forest sections, lake crossings, demanding uphills, and technical downhills. A map is posted at every trail junction. Parts of the section between Falcon Lake and Faloma is close to the Trans Canada Highway in places, so it is somewhat open and noisy, and there is one place where the trail crosses a road while you are descending a hill.

    <b>Forresters Footsteps</b>
    It's listed as a 4.2K snowshoeing and walking trail on the <i>Winter Adventures</i> brochure, but it was tracked for classic skiing in 2017-2018 and 2018-2019.
