Towards the end, one may join in the top of the 7.5 km for a fast trip home or continue back to the loop, via Dyke’s Bowl (check to ensure conditions are not icy. (Total distance – 10 km return). There is also access to the Summit Trail by continuing past Hare Hill and turn left at the Summit Junction.
Summit Trail – (colour code black) Starts on the return portion of the Bear Pond Loop (near the exit to the 7.5 km) and leads up over the White Hills, through an alpine-like valley, formerly known as the “Northwest Notch” and down towards Prairie Pond to intersect the Prairie Pond Trail at “the Junction”. This trail is more “back country” than the others, but offers superb vistas! (5 km from the Summit Junction to the Prairie Pond Junction). (Total distance – 15 km return)
Bunny Loop – Starts at the first clearing on the Prairie Pond Trail (a few hundred feet) and loops around the Lee Churchill Chalet about ½ km – designed for the Jackrabbits and anyone who would like an easy trail to ski.
All these trails and loops are marked and interconnected – but not necessarily groomed and not patrolled. The Touring Director is Harry O’Gay (466-8492)
