An abundance of trails are available in the Narrow Hills Provincial Park area, including those for hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, kayaking, ATVing and snowmobiling.

The Narrow Hills Scenic Drive is an interpretive trail that is open to mountain bikers, hikers and snowmobilers; however, it is also open to vehicles, so please use caution when travelling this trail. The trail features several curves, breathtaking views of the boreal forest and the area's many lakes and a museum that was once a former Park Ranger Station.

The provincial park also boasts more than 200 km of high quality, groomed snowmobile trails that feature a gas station and warm-up shelters for trail users. Although hikers and mountain bikers are welcome to use these trails, visitors should watch out for water covered areas in the spring, summer and fall that may be difficult to cross at times, depending on the trail user's experience and fitness level.

Hikers will also enjoy travelling along the Island Lake Hiking Trail and the Gem Lakes Hiking Trails, which are both roughly 6 km long. The Island Lake trail is a fairly easy trail to follow as it is wider and features a sandy terrain. This area features an abundance of black spruce and jack pine trees and is a great place to see moose and deer that frequent the area. Meanwhile, the Gem Lakes interpretive trails are designed for more advanced hikers as there are some challenging hills to climb. Within the park alone there are 25 bodies of water and dozens more surround the park, making it an ideal location for canoe and kayak adventures. ATVing is permitted on designated trails only. Please inquire at the park office. Visitors should bring plenty of water, snacks, sunscreen, bug spray, proper footwear and clothing, and GPS equipment or a compass with them when travelling the trails. Visitors are also asked to use caution and respect the wildlife in the area.
