|First Day Walk at Silent Lake Provincial Park
January 1, 2020 11:00a.m.
Ontario Parks encourages people to get out on New Year’s Day and enjoy the magic of winter and we will be visiting Silent Lake. After meeting at 11:00 a.m. at the Riverview Park and Zoo to arrange carpooling, we will head north arriving in time for a picnic on the beach. Picnic tables are available as are heated washrooms next to the parking lot. The view down the Lake is spectacular. After lunch we will head over to the Bonnie’s Pond snowshoe trail for our hike in the woods. The trail is well travelled so snowshoes aren’t really needed. Ice cleats on your boots and/or poles are useful as the terrain is rugged and can be icy in spots.
Admission to the park is $ 17.00 or $13.50 for seniors per vehicle. A single serve coffee machine, snacks and souvenirs are available in the campground office. Dress warmly and bring a camera, lunch and change for gas and admission. We should be back by 4:00 p.m. This outing is weather dependent and will be cancelled if driving is dangerous. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are planning to attend so you can be kept informed. Reference First Day in the subject line.
Accessibility: Moderate to difficult
