One of the longest dirt roads/trails in the Kettles. It features hills, marsh, woods, winding trails, and a lake for dog training (with parking area). 

The trail appears to turn into a snowmobile trail during the winter. This trail is filled with potholes and downed trees line the trail.

Nice scenic drive through forest land. This would be fun in the fall when the leaves have fallen and cover the road. A few inches of fresh snow would change the game also.

This might be the longest trail at Kettle Morrain Forest. Fairly well groomed. You don't really need a 4x4 to traverse this trail.
There are a couple of rolling mounds but otherwise the trail is fairly flat.

Bith sides are lined with trees and the scenic National Ice Age trail also crosses this trail.

I love this trail! It's not difficult for a jeep in dry conditions, but with a foot of snow on it would be tons of fun! It winds through the forest, with marshes and lots of other scenery along the route. I would highly recommend this one for anyone looking for great scenery

Trail leads to a dog training area and then back out. Would be more fun in fresh fallen snow. But might be closed for snowmobiles then.
