Hiking

Fire Tower Trail – 4.1 km - 1.5 to 2 hrs
The “must do” hiking trail in Restoule. The trail meanders through some beautiful mature forests, travelling across boardwalks and rugged rocky ridges. The trail offers a great rest location and view point at Amber Lake, and also passes by a historic Fire Tower. After a challenging climb this trail will continue to impress with a spectacular view from atop the 100 meter high Stormy Lake Bluff.

The River Trail – 1.2 km - 30 mins
This trail takes you through the rolling topography of the west side of the Restoule River. It is a gently paced trail that will take you along the river and then through some beautiful mature forests.

Rangers Point Trail – 860 m - 20 mins
If you’re looking for a great way to spend the afternoon this short trail is perfect for a casual hike or bike ride. The trail provides access to two spectacular waterfront picnic sites with views of the Stormy Lake Bluff and historic Fire Tower.

Angels Point – 1.7km - 40 mins
The close proximity to the Kettle Campground makes this a perfect trail for a quick bike ride or walk with the family. A relatively easy trail with a nice viewpoint on Restoule Lake.

Gibs Trail – 8.1km - 3 to 3.5 hrs
This is an unmaintained trail and is only recommended for experienced explorers. Trail is an undeveloped linear backcountry trail that eventually leads out of the park into adjacent Crown lands. Once outside of the park it has several branches and dead ends. A GPS, compass, and accurate map are recommended if you plan to leave the park boundaries. Sections of this trail remain wet all season and several beaver dam crossings can add to the difficulty.
