Description & Services

Information The path branches in two directions. The path to the left is a side trail which will take you to the site of the shrine. Following the trail through the fields and brush, you will soon come to an arched bridge, bringing into view the garden arbor introducing the site of St. Agnes shrine site. The path to the left will lead you to Kavanagh Lake. ATVs make frequent use of this area and there are many pathways heading in all directions. Maintaining a straight route where possible, choose the path to the left where it branches in two directions, thus staying in dryer territory. The terrain is now overgrown, but can still be discerned amongst the fern. Once at the lake, you may perch upon one of the many surrounding granite boulders and bask in the beauty of nature.
