Hazelwood Lake Conservation Area is usually thought of as the place for a little fishing or a quiet paddle. But it also has three short hiking trails.
Hazelwood Lake Conservation Area is located 14 km north on Hazelwood Drive. Follow Dawson Road (Highway 102) past County Fair Plaza to Hazelwood Drive. Turn right on Hazelwood Drive and follow this road until it ends at the Hazelwood Lake Conservation Area. The parking area is clearly marked and there is a $2 per car user fee that can be deposited on the honour system at the trailhead.
The start of the Dam Trail can be found close to the entrance to the parking lot. The Dam Trail is fairly level and provides views of the lake and river. The trail ends at the dam at Ferguson creek. This is a nice snowshoeing trail in the winter.
