Moose Mountain Provincial Park
South East Saskatchewan is home to the beautiful Moose Mountain Provincial Park, which offers a plethora of trails and activities for visitors to enjoy during their stay. Well-maintained snowmobile, snowshoe, cross-country ski, cycling, hiking and walking trails are located throughout the park. Guided horseback riding trails are also available at the Kenosee Lake Riding Academy.
The Little Kenosee Trail System (50+ km) offers a network of cross-country ski trails groomed for both traditional and skate skiing. Meanwhile, the Peninsula Trail (3.2 km) and Beaver Lake Trail (4.5 km) double as snowshoe trails in the winter, with cycling and hiking available in the spring, summer and fall.
Hikers and cyclists will also love the park’s other interpretive and non-interpretive trails that feature lookout points, beautiful scenery, views of spectacular lakes, and numerous opportunities for bird watching and seeing a variety of animals. For example, on the Beaver Lake Trail, visitors can watch beavers at work on and around their large beaver lodge, while the Birch Forest Trail (2.2 km) is an excellent spot for bird watching enthusiasts as only hikers are allowed on this trail.
Moose Mountain Provincial Park features a variety of other activities and amenities, including a Visitor/Nature Centre, daily interpretive programs and special events, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, mini-golfing, golfing, tennis courts, a beach and boat launch, picnic tables, grocery store, hotel, campgrounds, restaurants, washrooms, laundry mat, showers, and warm-up shelters. The Kenosee Superslides water park, Cannington Manor Historic Park, Prairie Dog Drive-In, Bearclaw Casino and Red Barn Flea Market are all just a short drive away from the park.
Moose Mountain became home to the provinces first ATV trail in a provincial park in 2016. You can read about the announcement regarding this change here.
