Seven of us and one dog hiked to Plumper Bay. The day was clear and sunny. We hiked through the forest, with just the right amount of shade. In the first part of the route follows the Maud Island Trail, where the forest ground cover is beautiful moss. The second part of the route is an old road, possibly built for the Seymour Narrows blasting in 1958, as well as for logging. The road bed is still in great condition, although littered with dead branches. The lunch stop is where that road comes out in Plumper Bay, on the north shore. We sat by the water in the shade with a gentle breeze. After picking up some garbage, we headed back. The group was up for a little adventure, so we took an old logging road which had reverted to wonderful deep moss. We made our way through the forest back to the Maud Island Trail and the cars. 7.0 km, 3¼ hours.
