Follow the old Hydro Line back towards the Flume / Water Tower. The majority of the trail is the remnants of a seldom used ATV trail.

At the end, the elevation begins to drop into a rock face into rock garden. This can be hiked down over, as the garden needs to be cleared more to allow a sensible pass over.

Majority of this trail is grown with scrub, but the path can easily be seen. Hoping to have this cleared up over the summer.

Access Info

Access from the old Southern Shore Highway, to the East.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!
