Arkon Lake Loop. Beware of dangerous wild life on any of the trails. By that I mean the Black Legged Tick that spreads Lyme disease. Wear light coloured plain clothes, expecially pants, tuck your pants into your socks. Check yourself at the end of the hike and when you get home. That is my tick talk.

Checking for wild life, Frontenac Park. Be sure to check yourself for wild life when you get home. Black Legged Ticks are now found in this area and they spread Lyme disease. That is my tick talk.
Rock compasses abound. They always slope to the NE, the vertical side is SW, formed by glacier moving from the north east while grinding the bed rock on the leading side, and carying away fractured rock from the back side.
