From the 8th parking this trail has the most elevation change of the 3 trails. It also has the largest climbs of the 3 trails. At not quite the half way point you descend a steep switchback. At just after the half way point you'll meet a spur trail that takes you off to the East and to the Walsh Loop. There is a second spur also on the right and to the East that takes you to the junction of the 8th concession and Bass lk sd rd. This is the road connector to the Schumacher (Mountain) loop. After this you'll have a steep climb from the hydro cut up to C.
