Stokely Creek

Reroute Updates:

 

2021-03-30:

Effective immediately, the access trail from McGaughn Rd. is permanently closed.

2021-02-17: Stokely area

Stokely Creek Lodge and the ski trails are closed this winter. The Stokely parking lot will be CLOSED and will not be plowed. Since the VTrail through private properties adjoining the Stokely Creek Lodge property simply lead to the closed Stokely trails, these trails will also be closed until further notice.  Do not use Stokely A2 or Stokely A3 on McGaughan Road or any trail connected thereto.

If you hike in from the Robertson Lake Road you must hike out the same way.  The Robertson Lake Road is plowed this winter as far as Robertson Lake. This will give easy access to the Algoma Highlands Conservancy trails, including Robertson Cliffs.  Be careful though, the road is a popular snowmobile trail and if your car wheels venture off the packed/ploughed portion you may sink up to the axle!

Hwy 552 access to the Jewelweed Loop

CAUTION accessing the trail from Hwy 552 (“Jewelweed Loop” etc.) as portions of the trail run along a logging road that is presently being used for a log haul. You can park at the push out just off the highway, but don’t block access for the logging vehicles.

This 13.1 km trail runs between Tier Lake and Robertson Lake Rd., and involves considerable elevation change. The picturesque vistas overlooking the hardwood forests around King Mountain and Robertson Cliffs are worth the climb. Access to this section is available via the Tier Lake Side/Loop Trail (Havilland Bay end), Robertson Lake Rd., and side trails at and near Stokely Creek Lodge (trail permit required in winter). A loop trail near Robertson Cliffs makes for a nice outing from a parking area. Portions of the trail follow cross-country ski trails maintained by Stokely Creek Lodge, and lead the hiker past scenic lakes and numerous streams.
