Park Advisories

1 The gate at the lower parking lot of Ouimet Canyon Provincial Park will be locked for the winter on Thursday, October 31, 2019. A Park Warden will do a final sweep of the 1km hiking loop and will ensure there are no vehicles parked at the upper lot before locking the gate. Though the gate will be locked until Friday, May 15, 2020, hikers/snow-shoers are still welcome to walk on the roadway to the upper lot to access the 1km hiking loop to the viewing pods. It is a 3km (6km return) hike from the lower parking lot to upper parking lot which includes a climb of nearly 200 metres in elevation. This trek is only recommended to avid hikers with appropriate gear/supplies.
