While the DNR maintains the trails in the Remote China Lake Solitude Area for cross-country skiing, they provide, with one exception, excellent hiking in the summer. The exception is the trail along the northwest shore of Glacier Lake; water covers long sections of this trail during warm weather. Otherwise there are about 12 miles of trails suitable for summer hiking. The best time to hike these trails would be in spring, early summer, or late summer and fall, after state forest crews have mowed the trails. Hunting season is not a good time to hike here.
Once past the metal gate at the start of the hike and the first trail intersection, the trail looks like a built-up railroad grade that loggers might have used to haul timber. The ground is lower on both sides of the trail which is wide and grassy as it passes through a mixed forest of maple, oak, aspen, birch, and pines. Continuing north and then northwest past a grassy clearing in the forest, the trail gains elevation and maples and oaks become more predominant. Gradually Remote Lake comes into view through the trees on the right and the trail passes along a narrow ridge separating this large lake from a much smaller, unnamed lake on the left. There is a lean-to shelter on this ridge. Nearby, short trails lead down to the shore of Remote Lake. A small, red pine-covered island sits 70-80 yards off the shore opposite one of these trails. The island looks like a peaceful spot to explore by those hikers up for the short swim over to the island.
It is the most densely populated area of the country and China Map Tourist Attractions includes the capital and largest city, the now devastated Port-au-Prince.

It was once a well-known base for pirates who preyed upon vessels as they sailed through the Windward Passage. Off the northwest coast lies Ile de la Tortue (Tortuga, or Turtle Island, so named because of its shape). It, too, was a major center for pirates who lay in wait for ships passing through the narrow waterway between Cuba and Hispaniola.
