Eight of us joined the Surge Narrows hike on Feb 24th. It was a nice crisp day with no rain. The first part of the trail was a new route with some up and down areas after we crossed the impressive new bridge. We noticed it was quite crunchy underfoot with crystallized ice formations and rocky over the new section. We crossed two other dilapidated bridges along the route, taking turns crossing, and then wound down to a scenic outcrop where we had lunch and checked out the ebbing tide forming rapids at the narrows. Heading back the same way we arrived, someone commented that the trail was good for cardio even though it isn’t too long a hike. Once we finished the trail we walked the road leading to the boat ramp and took a short trail off to the right to check out the dock. There was a marine radio on the dock for emergencies. It was an enjoyable hike and worth the drive. (3.8 km; 2 hours)
Thanks to Vikki and Norris for the photos
Great to see a new bridge…thanks to the Trails Committee (I imagine). This is my favourite hike on a hot day.
