McHugh lake is located 3/4 km south of HWY.1. Turn west immediately after the underpass of the West Hawk Lake cloverleaf to parking area. Follow the ski trail to reach the lake. Not recommended for vehicles with low road clearance. McHugh browns (trout) live up to the species reputation for being hard to catch. Key to success is patience and perseverance. NOTE: If you want to fish here, use artificial lures only.
The cache is located inside Whiteshell Provincial Park and so a Manitoba Provincial Park Pass is required to access the park. Provincial parks protect unique natural, cultural and historical sites; visitors should be respectful and remain on existing paths/trails.
Update: There is free admission to Manitoba Parks for 2009 and 2010 so no park pass is required! Enjoy!
Congrats to little bushman for being FTF!
This cache was created to add to the number of QUALITY caches hidden in Manitoba. It is an official BLITZ cache for the May Madness event. Hope you enjoy the hunt!
