Echo Ridges

Reroute Updates:

Trail reroute information will be listed here when available.

Trail Updates:

  1. The Echo Ridges trail from near Mabel Lake to the Driving Creek area (Maps 24 and 25, Edition 4.1 of VT Guidebook), which passes through Duncan Township, has now been reblazed with white paint, replacing the vinyl blazes. Paint blazes may be faint on some trees. Most of this portion of the trail is on roads.
  2. The trail between Wilson Lake (access point A8) and Peter Lake (A9)
    has been repaired from logging damage that occurred in 2020.
  3. The trail between Two Horse Lake Rd. (A6) and Echo Lake Rd. (A4) has been mostly repaired and is now hikeable (Dec. 2020). Some minor problem areas remain on the Coffee Creek side trail and along Stuart Creek.
  4. Access point A5 is no longer available owing to a washout on Moose Trail.
  5. The Two Horse Lake Road from the Bass Lake side is passable but rough by car for the first 5 km – then there is a washed out culvert (may be passable in an SUV) – the washout is 1 km from the north end of One Horse Lake where the Voyageur Trail heads north towards Coffee Creek.
  6. The Two Horse Lake Road from the Tower Lake side is passable by car but very rough past Wilson Lake (lots of boulders – extreme caution advised).

Presently, the Sault Ste. Marie Voyageur Trail members keep this 59.2 kilometre section hikeable.
