Please note that due to storm damage, the trail that connects the Ingleton-Wells section of trails to the Jeffrey-Cowan Forest Preserve trails remains closed at this time.
Note: There is NO parking allowed on Fire Route 10b to access the Stony Lake trails. This is a private road, not open to the public and your vehicle will be at risk of being towed; please be respectful of our neighbours. Additional parking is now available at the Jeffrey-Cowan Forest Preserve on Fire Route 10.
In July 2016, we officially opened the Stony Lake Trails network! It would not have been possible without the support of donors, volunteers, and neighbouring landowners who have assisted with locating the property’s old, unmanaged trails, fixing the trails up, and contributing to their long term maintenance. Many people have also generously provided permission for the trail network to cross over their private lands.
The 10 kilometer trail network boasts scenic views of Stony Lake, with benches and resting areas available throughout. The trails are suitable for those with moderate and intermediate hiking experience, and there will be many opportunities to observe the abundant and diverse wildlife in this area. There are easily accessible trail entry points with available parking located off Reid’s Road at the KLT-owned Ingleton-Wells Property as well as at Viamede Resort. Fire Route 10a is a private road and can not be used for accessing the trails.
While walking on the trails you can fully experience and enjoy the unique geology that makes the Stony Lake area both ecologically significant and beautiful, from its limestone cliffs and cuts to the significant rock outcroppings of the Canadian Shield.
