Rice Lake Loop Trail

Rice Lake Loop Trail is Another Easy Hike with the Kids.

Easy walking path, flat and wide.

A Very Rainy July Day At Rice Lake.

Rice Lake Loop Trail is common stomping grounds for our family. I’ve been going with the kids since they were in strollers. The 3km path is flat, very easy and loops around the picturesque lake. There are all kinds of viewing areas with benches along way to stop and take in the peaceful beauty. I’m always amazed at how quiet it can be, especially considering how easy and accessible it is to the City.

Rice Lake Loop Trail is perfect run with a stroller, a walk for fresh air and can be easily tied in with many other trails in the immediate area to extend the distance of the hike.

Nowadays we go to Rice Lake mostly to fish for rainbow trout. There is a very popular fishing dock to fish from , but we always go to our favourite spot toward the North end of the Lake. It’s a lot quieter, the spot is a little secluded and has a Memorial Bench to sit on and have lunch. Makes for a great morning or afternoon.

So Peaceful

Dogs and pets are not permitted on the trail, due to water shed sensitivities.

Rice Lake is the perfect opportunity to take the kids out and enjoy nature, so close to home.
