Ontario's Near North -Arrowhead Provincial Park

rain 19 °C

Rain, rain go away! It sprinkled most of last night here at Arrowhead PP, not enough to make everything too muddy but just enough to make the mosquitos active. We were wary about going out but found a break in the rain around 10:00am and decided to risk going out for a ride. There are many trails to choose from here in the park and we decided to do the 5K bike trail first. It was listed as a moderate mountain biking trail and except for a few hills early on, the terrain was manageable even for my non-mountain bike. It was a quiet ride without meeting even one person on the trail. Of course, the threat of rain probably had many leery of going out. The trail leads over a river and around the Arrowhead Lake which is in the middle of the campgrounds. We saw where you can rent canoes and kayaks as well as fat-tire bikes. The trail was groomed with very loose rocks (bigger than gravel) which made it harder to gain traction not easier.
The 5K took us just under an hour. When we got back to the trailer, it started to rain again so we managed to go out at a good time.

Later in the afternoon we ventured out again and hiked the 2.6K Stubbs Falls trail. Its a scenic trail that leads past and over (via a bridge) a waterfall and then along the rivers edge. It was a very nice walk which was easy. The trails here are very well maintained. We saw this really strangely growing birch tree that had 3 roots systems growing over an old stump. Very strange indeed!
The rest of our day was spent beside the fire. It was cool outside and the rain threatened all evening but did not materialize. Our site is in Roe Campground #400. The site is very private and even though the road is behind us we rarely hear it. Our neighbours are a long distance away. It’s a very nice site.
