The Rabbit Lake Road is one of the bigger roads off the 11. About 22km north of the Marten River Provincial Park, the raod connect to the Rabbit Lake.

Rabbit Lake Road is mostly Crown Land (Policy ID: G154r) and belongs to the Noth Bay District. Consult the Crown Land Use Policy Atlas from the Ministry of Natural Resources for current information. Provincial Parks are regulated by a different Policy ID. Be aware, there is usually no cell phone connection.

This seems to be a popular lake for fishing. When we reached the Rabbit Lake, several cars with empty boat trailers were parked there.

The road to the Rabbit Lake is in good condition and numerous side roads in various conditions connect to other places and lakes. There are no signs for directions and maps or GPS devices are not very helpful.

There is always something to see along the way.
Not always very pleasing to leave the Jeep - we got drenched at times.

Some places just need a little bit of hands-on to get through.

And sometimes the lakes just don't drain fast enough and flood the road.

Some impressions from our trip. Wet ones ... Marten River

... and sunny ones. It did not always rain.

Peace and quiet before dusk.

A beautiful display of the Canadian Shield. There is a rock plate under all the trees. Sometimes they lay bare, very impressive formations.

Signs of wildlife
Marten River It is almost impossible to miss the dams. Beavers are everywhere. When you find a dam and an active beaver house, be there at dawn or very early in the morning. There is a good chance you'll see them in action.

We came across these ducks and watched them for a while. Not all the birds are that easily spotted.

We almost missed this one.
