I recently visited Ferguson Lake Nature Reserve with some friends for an evening hike, and to do some fishing. We brought the dogs along and they had a blast running in the swamp and through the forest, chasing away any potential wildlife.
All along the trail there was interprative signs reading about the lakes heritage of horse logging that once operated there. The bridges take you right into the swamps and their awsome, I got a chance to get up close and personal with a garter snake that took me by surprise and I almost ended up in the swamp!
Fishing the lake we caught a couple trout worth eating, but the pups stole them. Fergason lake is home to lots of wildlife such as Lynx, Blacktail deer, Moose, and Coyotes to name a few.
It is a very unique trail and I had a great time, the city has done an awsome job on the trail, the bridges look brand new, but you can still go on the old bridges which are literally at water level, watch out for snakes though!
