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.
