  • Like Maple Leaf Lake and Maggie Lake on the Upldands trail - you will find lots of garbage at some of the sites around Provoking Lake. Head to the second loop with Head Lake and bring a water purifier...  more »

  • It is the most beautiful park to camp, hike and enjoy, you can not finish seeing this park, just gorgeous. It is so beautiful, that every twist and turn on the hike was breathtaking.

  • As beginners, this was a perfect trail for us! It's scenic, mostly shaded, some small climbs and you're rewarded with great secluded camping grounds after a manageable track of around 5km at Provoking Lake. There's also a waterfall at the half-way mark!
  • Great start if your getting into backpacking, then you can start picking off the western uplands loops, easy hiking,provoking,head and harness are beautiful,faya is worth visiting to,only 1 site. Back of loop extremely buggy,and boring. Worth considering going back out from harness the same way you came in,you won't be missing anything , sites close to that end of provoking you can barely call a site
  • Really nice backpacking trail with a few really cool views. A really great way for beginners to spend a few days in the bush.
  • Great trail. Busy trail for backpacking but not busy for a long hike.
