Conservation areas and park lands are great places go out and carve your own trail. The Owl Woods on Amherst Island is another great place to take a winter stroll.
Ice fishing is big here in Lennox & Addington County. Whether it’s Hay Bay, Beaver Lake or Skootamatta, there are plenty of great places to drill a hole and drop a line. Remember to check ice conditions first!
