The trail system that follows along the shoreline is a nice walk, there are interpretive signs to inform you of a variety of things. Along the trail, you will find some nice resting benches to just sit and enjoy the lake views. Walk quietly as you go around the lake, and you will have a good chance to see many different types of animals, both big and small plus many types of birds. You could see bears, deer, elk, raccoons, pine martins and birds like songbirds, waterfowl, land birds like grouse and many others.
It’s a nice spot to stop at for a rest, a bit of a walk to stretch your legs and maybe have a picnic lunch. We always pull over and take a walk to the lake, its a nice break about half ways to the north island from Campbell River. There is an 8 hour limit to your rest here at the Hoomak Lake Rec Site.
