We decided to explore the Speed River Trail on a hot summer day. With hydration as a priority, we only hiked 2 hours,completing section 1, a couple other side trails & returned via John Woods Side Trail. Most of the trail was shaded and the stillness,rustle of the trees with the warm gentle breeze, chirping of the birds and the ripple of the water made the hike enjoyable. We saw two women and one man fly fishing in the river as well as a few people & dogs in the water trying to get refreshed.

Miscellaneous Hikes / Hiking in Musquodoboit,Nova Scotia (June 2011)
« Last post by marilyncouture on July 16, 2011, 08:09:20 PM »
While visiting our son, Chris in Halifax;he led us on a picturesque & challenging hike in the Musquodoboit area. We started out walking on the Musquodoboit Trail which is a converted rail bed.
After approx 2.5 km, we took a path to the right,indicating directions to reach the "Admiral Lake Loop"(9km). We climbed steeply through mossy woods to a big boulder perched percariously on its top "Rolling Stone Lookoff" which offered a 180 degree panoramic view over the White Lake Wilderness area & island studded Admiral Lake. Other lookout points also offered spectacular views.

Miscellaneous Hikes / Frontenac Provincial Park

If you are ever in the Kingston area, you might want to check out Frontenac Provincial Park. It is a semiwilderness park with granite outcrops, vast wetlands, mixed forests & trees. We explored this park a couple days at the end of April.  Weather did not cooperate, but we still managed to hike two moderate trails- Arkon Lake (13km) & Cedar Lake (15km). The trails offered great scenery with much evidence of beaver activity and we even spotted three white tailed deer.

There is no restriction on the hikes that you wish to post about.  If you ever put a post up that the GHTC felt really had no place on the forum, Pat or I would remove it and contact you with an explanation.  Members of the GHTC are by definition hike enthusiasts, and I am sure would be curious to poke through pics about your hikes out in Frontenac...I know I would...and it might even stimulate one of us to check out a new area.

Just keep the posts for hikes that are not part of the GHTC trail system in this 'Miscellaneous Hikes' area.  There are not yet enough people making posts to make it too confusing, and if it becomes an issue in the future, Pat or I can create a new section that makes it a more obvious separation. 

Bottom line...if in doubt whether other users will appreciate it, just post anyway.  The more you do it, the more comfortable you will become with the forum software, and you might even inspire another user to get on there and make their first post.

  Thanks for cleaning it up.I didn't think we could post pictures of other hikes. I thought this site was just for Guelph Hiking Club trips. Marilyn

You did a great job for your first crack at it Marilyn.  Once you paste a link to the photograph here on the forum, if you move the photos to a new folder in your Picasa or Photobucket, etc.,  the original link you pasted into your forum post will become invalid.  After speaking to you I have cleaned up the broken links, but left the two pics that are still visible.  When you get a chance, just click on 'Modify' and repeat the steps for linking the will be great practice for you, and will let us all see those great shots again.  Why don't you try another new post all together too, using those shots from your recent trip to Frontenac?
