Sundays on Snow

Sunday February 8 2015
Surprise Cove

Great to see the fresh snow! You all danced hard to make that happen. Today we are going on the trail toward Surprise Cove- it is the old road between Plaister Mines and Big Harbour. Trail has been packed with a skidoo, so conditions will be great.

It is a flat trail, sheltered and good for snowshoes or cross country skis. Dress in layers, mitts might be better today than gloves. Poles recommended.

Meet at Baddeck Welcome Centre at 115 PM, or at Plaister Mines (off Route 205) just before 130 PM, (Just past Highland Cemetery). Car pool is best as road is narrow; we will need to turn around when we get there and park facing toward Baddeck.

We will be out for about an an hour and 15 minutes.
Everyone is welcome! Eileen Woodford
