Starting from the Fire Lookout on Mt Quimper, lots of open rock and rolling trail down through the trees.

Well worth the hike up.

Also be used as a climbing trail to the top of Quimper as well.

Access Info

Harbourview Road. Park at gate and ride up the main gravel road. a few different access points to the trail. We chose the old access grade. Well washed out but 50% rideable.
