The Frontenac Challenge is managed jointly by Parks Ontario and the Friends of Frontenac. You can find details about the 2023 Frontenac challenge at -

BOARDING & LODGING:
You are responsible for arranging your own food and accomodation. Most often participants find it convenient and cost-effective to stay at Snug Harbour Resort, a short distance from the park. If you intend to stay there, feel free to reach out to the trip leader and let me know whether your email can be shared with other participants. Often there are opportunities for joining others in renting a cabin and jointly preparing meals.

HIKING
These hikes are for serious hikers only. You should be prepared for long hiking days. No drop-outs. You should bring your lunch and at least 1.5 - 2 litres of water. You should dress for the weather. Bring your rain gear, if needed.

Additional information will be provided to participants nearer to the event.

Only a limited number of spaces are available.
