A friend called the other day to ask if I wanted to go for a hike in Algonquin Park. We decided to head down towards Maynooth to see if we could find a trail that she had a vague memory of from years ago.
We asked staff at the Pine Grove Point camping area and they pointed us in the direction of High Falls Trail a couple of kilometers east of the Kings Cote access point.
There were lots of interesting things to see along the trail and some great vantage points.
I was reminded again how much I want to find a mentor that can teach me how to forage for mushrooms. The forest is teeming with them and I want to know what I can safely eat.
After the hike we headed up the road to Kings Cote Lake for a picnic. Individual fritatas and a bean salad made for a great lunch.
I think next time we’ll explore Basin Lake.
