Well, my 30walks project sat on the back burner for a bit there, but now I’m ready to get back into it!
(These pictures were taken April 25th, so that’s why there is snow. I’ll have to go back to this spot soon and see what it’s like without snow!)
Background: I turned 30 this year. On my birthday, in April, I decided to start a new documentation/adventure project, called 30walks. You can read the first post about it here.
This is walk #: 1.
This walk is at: Johnson Lake, just outside of North Sydney. Exit 3 off the TCH has a parking lot. Park there, and you’ll see an ATV road going to the right, between the lake and the highway. Follow that. At the end of the lake, the trail turns in to the left, into the woods.
Easyness to find: pretty easy.
Easyness to walk: pretty easy.
Other notes: I didn’t go as far as I might have liked in, because I was alone and nobody actually knew where I was. (I hadn’t told anyone I was going there.) But it seems like the trails continue for a fair ways, maybe even all the way around the lake? The rock formations lining one part of the trail were really neat and made me wish for a geologist to tell me all about them. Overall, a really nice walk (except the part along the highway, but, oh well), and one I’ll be going back to, especially since it’s so close to where I live.
