Hunt Lake Trail - Whiteshell Provincial Park
Improvements to the trailhead and staging area are being undertaken in fall 2020, with construction expected to be completed by spring of 2021.  Work will include expansion of the parking lot, addition of a non-modern washroom, and re-routing the first section of trail away from the cottage block road.  The trail will remain open through construction, please be aware of additional signage and use caution in the area.  Details here.

Fall Hunting Seasons Underway in Parks
Trail users should be aware that open hunting seasons occur in many provincial parks, and that hunters may be encountered along trails and backcountry areas. 

  • Trail users are reminded to stay on designated trails and always keep pets on leash.  Wearing high visibility clothing is recommended in the fall season.
  • Hunters are reminded to exercise caution in parks as backcountry areas are shared with other visitors.  Discharge of firearms is prohibited within 300 metres of any designated trails, campsites, recreation areas and other developments.  Contact local Manitoba Conservation and Climate office regarding hunting access and regulations.
