Sawmill Lake Classic Tour 2019 January 26, 2019 January 26, 2019 Dawson Trail Heritage Pavilion - Meet at 9am Eastern time - tour runs from 10am-4pm.

In January when the lakes and rivers of Quetico Park have frozen over and the paddling season has taken a hiatus skiers will venture out into the pristine wilderness of the frozen snow covered paddling mecca

Hosted by The Beaten Path Nordic Trails and Quetico Park staff, The Sawmill Lake Classic Tour is an old time traditional ski tour within Quetico Provincial Park. The narrow single track twisty trails will have skiers meandering through mixed forests along side the Pickerel River over creeks and through lowland bogs to a half way point at Sawmill Lake. The tour is not a race and if you carry your lunch and drinks on your back, you can enjoy them around an open fire before the last half of the loop back. Once past Sawmill Lake the tour follows what was once an old logging road and now a narrow trail with longer flat sections and gradual hills. A bonfire beside Baptism Creek is the final warm up fire before the last stretch back. Refreshing beverages and a fire will be waiting at the Heritage Pavilion (Visitor Center).

12km and 24 km options
