The South Whiteshell Trail runs from Caddy Lake to the Manitoba-Ontario border, with a spur trail from West Hawk to the southeastern tip of Falcon Lake. The spur is an exceptionally well-built trail that receives a lot of year-round use. There are some challenging and exhilarating sections on this trail while other portions are quite effortless. Enjoy the remarkable views leading you from lake to lake through pine forests, past granite cliffs and outcroppings. The South Whiteshell Trail is part of the Borders to Beaches Recreational Trail Project that connects the Manitoba-Ontario border to the beaches of Lake Winnipeg.


When following roadways, trail users should always remain on the shoulder (may not be paved). It is recommended that you only use roadways during daylight hours and under appropriate weather conditions.
