Ingolf Loop - Trail, West Hawk Lake, Manitoba

Ingolf Loop - Trail, West Hawk Lake, Manitoba

DESCRIPTION

A really fun and pretty loop through the Canadian shield. Many challenging sections across granite slick rock. The trail is easiest to describe and follow going counter clockwise, though that starts with the most difficult terrain first. From the tracks, follow the singletrack and cairns for a couple km. There are a couple left hand side trails to cabins. Eventualy the singletrack hits an ATV trail, turn left. When you hit the first big lake watch for the trail on your left on the top of the last hill before the water. This is part of a portage trail between lakes, stay left at the juction or you head down to the water of the next lake. Trail connects with another ATV trail and you work your way generally left avoiding the tight lefts into cabins. Eventually you have to ride over a beaver dam under the power line - where else can you do that! Follow the ATV trails as they grow more used back to Ingolf.

There is some really, really lovely trail here. The exposed bedrock is a different challenge than what i'm used to, the scenery is amazing and there is lots of technical climbing and descent - if you can find it. It's a real shame that this trial isn't better marked since it is amazing riding.

Trail is an atv trail made by cottagers to get to their cottages and some of the back lakes. Parking lot is on private property and cars are being towed.

Heads up for those that are thinking of riding Ingolf. We have ridden this trail many times and feel that it is a Manitoba Classic backcountry trail. However as of 2010-Aug- 07th I am able to let you know that a large majority of the trail is not ridable do to large numbers of trees that have fallen across the trial.

If you are into hard core bush whacking while carrying your bike have at it.

There appears to be some clean up being done by ATVers, thank you who ever you are. But there are the other kind of AVTers that are just punching through the bush making a further mess.

Please note that the ratings are only for the trail as it is now. Normally this trail is awesome and I hope that it will be soon again.

+++ RIP INGOLF RIP +++

Seems some overzealous wood cutter clear cut Ingolf. You bike in a couple hundred feet and all is gone - the trees are gone, the muskeg is dried up, the streams are no more.

INGOLF IS NO MORE. I hope they had their permits in order to remove this forest.
