Destination: Miserable Lake. No one seems to know why it’s called Miserable Lake; it is a very scenic and beautiful place. This challenging hike is a combination of wide ATV trails, narrow beaver dam crossings, bald rock outcroppings, and barely visible single track. It passes through some of the most unique habitat in the Haliburton Highlands, and is home to many species at risk. We will have lunch on a rocky outcrop looking over Miserable Lake. Hiking boots and a hiking pole/stick are recommended. Don’t forget your lunch. Suitable for adults and teens. No dogs please
