Take Hwy 17 west from North Bay or east from Sudbury (48 km.) to Warren. Your last gas stop is here.
Note: Logging roads are not maintained. Intersections are not marked. New logging roads can appear anywhere, undermining your best directions. Slow, slow down and drive carefully. Watch for logging trucks.
Caution: This is a former logging road. It is no longer maintained and deteriorating. Conditions can change from season to season or even during severe weather. Only 4WDs and trucks are recommended. Drive slowly when you leave Hwy 805.
Getting to Obabika Lake from the gate
Portage up the road north of the gate and east along the portage trail. Follow the green arrow on the map.
Parking and the gate
Park south of the gate or at the old logging camp. The old logging camp is still Goulard property, but there is unwritten permission to park there (though this could change). Don't obstruct the road or entry through the gate or buildings at the camp.
Don't park north of the gate — don't even drive through an open gate, as it could have been vandalized. An unauthorized car north of the gate is a violation of the law and MNR takes it seriously.
Don't use this trail. It looks like a good shortcut, but it crosses private property.
Obabika Lake Lodge and adjoining properties
DON'T cross private property. There is a trail on the west side of the properties at the south end of Obabika Lake.
There is no road access here. Go to Pond Lake.
As it is a remote lodge, there are no services normally associated with lodges in higher trafficked areas, such as a restaurant.
