Mayer Lake Shoreline Trail





The Mayer Lake Shoreline Trail is an informal route along the southern edge of Mayer Lake, located in the Naikoon Provincial Park. It is not a flagged or marked trail. Some rules apply in the Naikoon Provincial Park.

The turnoff to the Mayer Lake Day use area is located about 9km past the Tlell river bridge, going towards Port Clements, on Highway 16. It is marked on the highway and is easy to find. The Lake access is only about 1km from the highway, along a dirt road that sometimes can have a lot of potholes. 

There are 2 picnic tables and a outhouse at the Day use area. There is also a boat ramp for recreational boaters with small crafts to put to the water. 

The area can be wet and boggy. 

For a personnal account of the hike and some extra pictures, please read our blog entry "Mayer Lake shoreline and Gold Creek Trail".

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: This suggested hike is a route and as such is not along a formal trail. Access to the trailhead can be difficult, the hike itself can be strenuous, require some navigational skills, special gear and people attempting this hike need to be well prepared.
