Exploring Yellowknife

I’m up the Ingraham Trail

I had planned to have a couple posts scheduled to get published today and tomorrow but I just never got around to it.

I am currently up the Ingraham Trail and in on Hidden Lake. The weather have been so great lately and I wasn’t sure how much longer there would be snow so I am taking advantage of it and gone sledding for a couple days.

For those of you who don’t know, the Ingraham Trail is the road the leads west of Yellowknife for about 60kms. Along the road there are many lakes with boat launches and day use areas. It is not unusual for someone to drive up the road for the weekend, whether to camp somewhere along the way or to go to there cabin. Which there are many of. Other than Dettah which is actually a community along the way there are small communities of people who live along the way. Cassidy Point, Prelude East, West and Main all have year round residents. There is also two seasonal campgrounds, Reid Lake Campground and Prelude Lake Campground.

If you have never been up the road just go for a drive on a Sunday afternoon. Don’t forget to take your camera. You never know what you’ll see.

Be back soon.
