Emerald Lake

Gods Lake Old Growth White Pine Forest Conservation Reserve

Trip Highlights

This trip starts with a 45km drive to the McConnell Lakes Recreation Area where 35 lakes and their immediate surroundings are considered important earth science features as it is composed of glacial deposits and outwash in a moraine complex.

Emerald Lake features a sandy bottom and a clear turquoise hued lake. Logs and fish are very visible! A short drive further, McLarens Bay Falls are great to explore if the sun is too intense. Nature viewing and swimming make this trip great for families.
