Due to hurricane Dorian a couple weeks earlier , it was slow-going on this beautiful wilderness trail: blocked by many huge timber blowdowns that we had to circumvent, then search in the underbrush for the next orange trail markers. Branches and random-sized twigs with leaves littered the forest floor. Quite an adventure - we had a paper guide but again I was thankful for having downloaded the route on my AllTrails App to help direct us back towards the trail.
Cape George on N.S. highway #337 has several heritage trails. A friend Joanne joined me on a hike: trailhead at Cape George Heritage School Museum. We walked counter-clockwise on the heavy dotted trail on the map - except sadly we somehow missed the lookoff.
This day had been designated a road trip: enjoying the ocean view drive on the Sunrise Trail, exploring Earltown's (mini) farmer's market and the charming general store (https://www.facebook.com/downtownearltown/). But a hiking sign on the side of the road diverted my plan. My raincoat was in the car but not my hiking shoes. Thankfully the trail's ups and downs were minimal: though I I was quick to explain 'why the Birkenstocks' when I met a hiker trail. The shoes worked fine :-) I wouldn't have wanted to miss this surprise.
