The Ingolf trail is an amazingly diverse trail that loops just over 15 km back to the Ingolf parking lot from where it begins. From the parking lot, head north over the train tracks and then turn to your right. Follow the gravel road for 1 km until you reach its end at the train tracks and a small shack. Continue on the train tracks for another 700 meters and you will see the descent to the trail on your left hand side.
After the first couple of km, you will hit the clear cut area. Yes, this all used to be a beautifully forested area before the loggers got their hands on it. After a few years it is finally turning green again and beginning to grow back. Often times, the trail can be a bit tricky to follow.
The Ingolf Trail will take you through some incredibly diverse sections of the Canadian Shield. The trail consists mainly of single track trail with a few sections of double track. The single track is very fun, much of it undulates up and down over the shield rock. Roots, rocks, and the many muddy/wet sections along the way present both challenges to your skill while adding some extra fun!
Take Hwy #1 East from Winnipeg and turn right on the Hwy 44 West Hawk Lake Turnoff (approx. 140 km). when you reach the T junction shortly after, turn left to stay on Hwy 44. Follow Hwy 44 for a short while and turn right on provincial road 312. Follow 312 until you reach the end and park in the parking lot beside the train tracks.
