Enjoy a peaceful and easy stroll through a historic part of Prince George, BC. 

Ferguson Lake is a small and beautiful lake on the north eastern edge of the Prince George city limits. It's a great place to go for a nice walk around the picturesque lake. 

It has a view point, picnic table, interpretive signage, outhouse and a dock. Only human-powered boats are allowed on the lake, such as kayaks and canoes. 

Once in the parking area you can choose to go either way around the lake. There are a few nice board walks and parts of the trail and get quite muddy at certain times of the year. Most of the trail is quite flat with very few small hills. Along the trail there are a couple of old hand built houses, as they used to house homesteaders in the early 1900s. 

There is also great fishing in the lake, it is stocked with Rainbow and Brook Trout. Just make sure you have the proper licenses to fish in BC. 

To get there head north on the John Hart Highway (97N) and then turn left onto North Kelly Road. Follow the road until you see a sign that says "Ferguson Lake Nature Reserve," turn left on that road, it is called Ferguson Lake Road. Continue straight until you get to the lake.
