Forest Access Roads are OPEN, use at own risk. 

Forest Access roads are the responsibility of MNRF (705-286-1521).  Roads are to be used at own risk and are not inspected daily.  Tow truck operators will often refuse to enter such roads to provide assistance.

Hiking Trail Conditions:

All hiking trails are open for walk through access. Except the Dorset Tower Trail which remains closed. The Crests of Kennisis Trail can only be accessed from the Circuit of Five Viewpoints trail head as Parks Canada is keeping access across the Dam at the Big Hawk Lake Road trail head closed and locked. That means anyone hiking the trail will have to go there and back, not being able to cross the dam at the finish.
