The property has a network of trails that are described on maps available at the kiosk on Jenness Hill Rd.  It is recommended to bring a map with you as it includes the intersection numbers that are posted on the trails.  You can find the trail map here, and print a copy to bring with you. 

One popular hike follows the blue trail down to the beaver lodge, returning via the yellow trail, with a stop at the waterfall.

Please note that mountain bikes and snowmobiles are only permitted on the red trail.  Motorized wheeled vehicles are not allowed.
