local hiking trails

Hey you guys. How many people like to go hiking ? I’m looking for hiking/camping trails that I can stay over night along the trail. But I don’t want to drive to far from Brandon, if possible. What are your suggestions ?

spruce woods

Spruce Woods has trails like that. Epinette I believe is one of them.

Riding Mountain National Park

Backcountry camping at its best.

Camping and Hiking

As said, Epinette trail was a great hike out, it was about 10km to the second campsite, a really nice lookout spot over the valley as you are hiking,it has a water pump (water is supposed to be boiled before consuming) also has two fire pits, and bathroom, it was a really nice place to hike out to and camp. There is a closer campsite (3 or 4 km (?)) in, which had similar amenities.  
Anything in the park is a bit more of a drive, but I would highly recommend Scott's creek, about 2 hr walk in, a really beautiful creek you cross to get into the campsite, and the option to do a longer hike. You do have to drive up to mccreary so it is further away.Was much nicer to walk in and drop off heavy packs and set up tents and then do a big hike.  
Heres the site for Carberry trails

There is information on backcountry camping here:

You have to reserve the sites first, so you may want to start by finding a site in a location that works for you.

I know where to find the information for the trails. I’m just asking what are people’s favorites.
