The North Whiteshell Trail links many of the well-developed trails and campsites in the Whiteshell Provincial Park. Inverness, Otter Falls, Dorothy Lake, Nutimuk Lake, Betula Lake, White Lake, Jessica Lake, Brereton Lake, and the town of Rennie all offer trail users natural wonders and daily necessities. The natural beauty of this area makes trail building a challenge but points of interest such as Bannock Point Petroforms and the many waterfalls make this a very popular part along the Trans Canada Trail. The North Whiteshell Trail is part of the Borders to Beaches Recreational Trail Project that connects the Manitoba-Ontario border to the beaches of Lake Winnipeg.
