I awoke to the soothing sight of Falcon Lake stretching away beyond the wooded slopes that surround the resort. Had it been summer, I would have considered an early-morning canoe over to Picnic Island, but the late fall weather compelled me to slumber on – something you are unlikely to mimic, being so much more energetic than me.....

.... Falcon Trails is a small-scale wilderness-cum-ski-resort with 40 km of trails for hiking or biking, as well as canoeing and kayaking. In winter, you will be joined by some of the locals enjoying the 13 downhill runs, snowboarding park, tubing, cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing (that’s with the tennis racquets) on offer. If that’s not enough, you should also keep watch for the vast variety of local wildlife, which includes porcupine, bear, wolf, osprey, moose, marten, beaver and fisher. Guests self-cater in post-and-beam cabins with private beach or dock; all are modern constructions with pine in abundance, soaring ceilings, wood-burning stoves, decent kitchens, hot tubs (in most) and lake views. A particularly classy chalet style, you might call it. One-and-a-half miles away, two large, solar-powered cabins, look over High Lake and enjoy a wonderful isolation. The resort is owned and run by the Christie/Hamilton family, life-long residents of the area who have incorporated their love of the environment and sport in the construction and day-to-day running of the cabins.
