Trails

Narrow Hills Scenic Drive Trail

The Narrow Hills Scenic Drive follows a push moraine that was created 10,000 years ago by an ice sheet surging forward and creating a group of hills and ridges. From the highest ridge, you can see miles of lakes and boreal forest, and there are interpretive signs along the way to tell the story. Stop by the park office for details and to check on road conditions - the road can be rough and a vehicle with a higher clearance or four-wheel drive is recommended.

Gem Lakes Hiking Trail

The Gem Lakes - Diamond, Jade, Little Jade, Opal, Sapphire, Pearl and Little Pearl - are a group of the most beautiful water bodies you will ever see. These deep, sand-bottom lakes earn their names by reflecting colours like emerald, jade and aqua blue. A 6 km hiking trail winds around and between the lakes, offering stunning viewpoints. Interpretive signs tell the story of how the lakes were formed and why their colours are so unique. Wilderness camping is available on a first-come, first-served basis at Jade, Diamond and Opal Lakes.

Island Lake Hiking Trail

This 6 km trail is accessible off of the Scenic Drive trail. It angles down the south slope of the ridge and passes through mature forests of jackpine and black spruce. The trail is wide and sandy, and you will often be able to spot the tracks of moose or deer. After circling Island lake, the trail climbs back to the parking area.

Snowmobile Trails

Numerous snowmobile trails exist within the park, all of which make excellent biking and hiking trails in the summer. Stop by the park office for a snowmobile trail map of the more than 200 km of groomed snowmobile trails. 

ATV Trails

Narrow Hills has designated ATV trails. ATVs are only permitted on these trails and must be trailered to to the trailhead.
