Harrigan Lake Trail

Description

The Harrigan Lake Trail is a short trail that travels through mainly softwood forest along the shore of Harrigan Lake. The trail is lined with Labrador Tea along the lake, and moss as you take the loop away from the lake. The roots of large spruce keep the trail intact. Near the back of the loop the trail travels through a field of alder bushes before returning to the shore of the lake. There are nice lookouts along the shore. The trail then re-enters the forest through a tunnel formed by a band of cedar trees. Look to the back of the lake and you will see cliffs and a large beaver hut.
