Frame Lake Trail

This seven-kilometre loop around Frame Lake is the recreation trail for activity in the heart of the capital. While the eastern half is paved and passes by residential neighbourhoods, the western half consists of boardwalks over muskeg and wayfinding over rolling, forested-shrouded Shield-rock. Located along the trail are interpretive signs, picnic areas, beaches and viewing lookouts. The trail also provides access to the Prince of Whales Northern Heritage Centre, the Northern Frontier Visitor Centre, city hall, Somba K'e Park and the territorial legislative assembly. It links to other trails, including the route to Fred Henne Territorial Campground via Jackfish Lake.
