Ten of us took advantage of the brief break in the rainy weather to explore another part of the island. We started from near Mine Lake. After a short steep section, the old logging road is pretty flat and open, going through a section of the woodlot in which the re-planted trees are growing nicely. The forest is quite diverse and some of it is mature with open understory. We took a short side trip to a trailhead on the Bold Point Road, then had lunch in a nice clearing. After lunch we bushwhacked a bit and climbed a little bluff with good views all around and continued south to rejoin the Surge Narrows Road, which we walked back to the starting point. 8.3 km; 3½ hours.
