Follow the trail’s blue blazes clockwise from the trail head. The trail passes through an area of large rocks which is a reminder that this was once the shore line of an ancient glacier lake. The trail then passes through a maple, balsam, birch forest and by some beaver ponds. The trail then winds along a ridge with views before it returns to the start of the loop.

This loop trail falls within the Peninsula 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 Peninsula Bruce Trail Club’s website at
