A holistic health coach and outdoor activity enthusiast. Kayaking, cycling, snow shoeing - and thanks to OutSideWay’s creator - back country hiking reigns as my favourite. Sharing outdoor adventures with my husband and family “fills my well” - and encouraging, coaching women in the 50+ age zone to experience the pleasures and challenges of the outdoors is my “venture-in-process”. #karentogo

To reach this Rogart Mountain trail, Google maps directed me down Kemptown Road, a dirt road which wouldn't have been my first choice. But it turned out for the best. Good driving conditions and en route passed a parking lot with info sign for the remote 13K wilderness part of the Gully Lake Trail system - where I will hike another day!! https://www.sugarmoon.ca/hike/trail-maps/
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.
