Kingfisher Lake Outdoor Education Centre is run by the Lakehead Public Schools to teach awareness and appreciation of nature to children.
The public trail winds through a wetland and forest to the shore of Kingfisher Lake before looping back to the starting point. This popular trail is well marked and we found we did not need our snowshoes even after a fresh snowfall.
Travel east on Highway 11/17 and turn left onto Highway 527. Follow Hwy 527 for 20 km and watch for the sign on the right for the Kingfisher Outdoor Education Centre. Park to the left in the parking area near the highway. The driveway is not for public use.
