The Hazelnut Trail skirts sections of Crescent Lake and really should be on everyone’s summer hiking list, whether you are from Green Bay North, Green Bay South, elsewhere or ‘upalong’. The first sections of the trail are easy-going in summer and suitable for most ages and mobility levels. You could do a short distance or turn your walk/hike into a 4.5km loop, or 6km+ expedition. The Hazelnut Trail offers a variety of options. (Hazelnut map on Town of Roberts Arm website)
There are several points to enter the trail. One prominent entrance is at the Heritage Centre and RV park area. The second is at the point where Crescent Lake touches Roberts Arm road (Route 380). There is a gazebo and signage so this entrance is hard to miss. There is a map displayed, which makes this a great place for starting if you are new to this trail.
The Hazelnut is not just for spring/summer/fall. The path is wide, which can make it a nice spot for snowshoeing. So, go grab your pot lids!
