|Incidently twoshadows, the RCMP would like to question you about the disappearance of two hikers that went missing near an old logging route, in the Bisset region.|

|Whiteshell - mantario hiking trail. It's a great trail, but not something that you should think of doing unless you have done a fair bit of hiking - or are nuts and stubborn. Look up friends of the mantario trail for more info. It's about a 60 km trail, higher difficulty for those from manitoba, low for those from anywhere with mountains.|

|I was looking at a book today of walking trails in Manitoba - its just been published. Really nice short descriptions of trails throughout Manitoba, with photos and basic information.|
Try googling prairiepathfinders.
Of course you might be looking for more than just a walk in the park.

|The Cabin Lake trail does have a beaver dam to cross and normally it is very wet this time of year. But it has been dry so you might be alright. It is a really nice trail, at the end there is an unoffical trail that crosses the swamp and continues on the other side of Cabin lake.|
If you stop by the Rennie Office they will have maps available of all the hiking trails.

|^^ I got this from this site: http://www.pc.gc.ca/pn-np/yt/kluane/activ/activ11_e.asp which states that "If you are traveling with your dog, National Park regulations require that it be kept on a leash at all times."|
I have been hiking at Spruce Wood park many times and it won't even allow dogs.
If I were hiking with young children, definitely won't want to bump into some uncontrollable animals...

|Hiking & camping is great, I haven't been for a few years tho :(. And I mean camping, hiking out to a place with what you need on your back or canoeing there , not going to Birdshill Park or the Whiteshell and getting a serviced lot for your trailer.|
Nothing wrong with that either, but it isn't camping, it's getting away from it all.

Some folks at the "offleash" dog park get annoyed when a dog runs up to them...
And I have to ask... If they are at an "off leash park" should they not be expecting this? Particularely if they have dog too?
Silly me, I thought this would be normal behavior.
