Your hike starts at the beginning of the 2nd Line East access trail at the end of the travelled portion of the 2nd Line East. This 150 metre trail will take you to an intersection with the Oliver Creek Side Trail.

Turn left onto this side trail and follow the blue blazes until reaching the main Bruce Trail.  Turn right onto the main trail and follow the white blazes for about 1.5 km until you reach another intersection with the Oliver Creek Side trail.  Just before you reach this intersection you will come to an excellent lookout with views of the Boyne Valley.  Upon reaching the side trail intersection, turn right and follow the blue blazed side trail until you reach the 2nd Line East access trail. Turn left and return to your car.
