We will walk south on the road to access the main trail. From there we will take the John Appleton and Beth Gillespie Side Trails to the main trail. For the energetic, there will be an opportunity to climb the newly built staircase (completed June 2020) down the escarpment and back up again. We return via the main trail. There are a number of beautiful lookouts over Barrow Bay and Little Lake. For more information, call or text 647-918-4180.
