From the corner of 21st Side Rd and 4th line take the Intercept Access Trail 200 metres eastward from the north shoulder of this curve in the road.  Here you will meet the main Bruce Trail. Turn left and follow the white blazes of this main trail.  You will traverse a steep valley and then reach a ridge with views to the north. You will come upon an intersection with the eastern end of the Loree Side Trail. Pass it by at this time but you will return via this Side trail on your return journey on the loop. The main trail intersects with the Len Gertler Side Trail which, if you wish to shorten your loop trip by about 1.2 km, can be taken.  This blue blazed trail will rejoin the main trail after 2.1 km.

If you stay on the main Bruce Trail, the trail heads west along a ridge and at the top of the Georgian Peaks Ski Club with beautiful views.  The trail will head south, crossing the 21st Side Rd, and intersecting with the western end of the Loree Side trail.  Turn left onto the Loree Side trail and follow the blue blazes 1.3 km back to the main Bruce trail.  Turn right onto the main trail and follow the white blazes for 1.3km and the Intercept Access Trail which will lead you back to your parked car.  

This loop trail falls within the Beaver Valley section of the Bruce Trail. For more information on other loop and side trails and the portion of the main Bruce Trail in this section please visit the Beaver Valley Bruce Trail Club’s website at
