Tried Out One of those Bike Trails Finally!
So remember those bike trails I mentioned a few posts back? The ones that I heard were in this area but have never seen? Well I found one of them the other day and tried it out. I left home and took the same route I always do but decided to go a bit further than usual since time was allowing me to do so and I wanted to go somewhere different. When I reached the point where I usually turn around, I decided to go to the end of the street to see where it went and noticed a trail that went alongside the cliffs next to the ocean. I had no idea where the trail would lead me but decided to check it out. The trail was long and just as I was about to turn around and head back home, I noticed that I could see the lighthouse not far away in the distance. I decided to keep going until I reached it but the trail ended on the beach below the lighthouse. I had to walk the bike across the rocky beach and carry it over some giant boulders and boggy areas but finally made it to another trail on the other side that led directly to the lighthouse! I stuck around for a while and took some pictures and watched several boats maneuver in and out of Sydney Harbor. It was getting late when I finally headed for home so I took the road back out of fear of possibly meeting coyotes on the trails but I will be out again soon looking for more new places to go riding very soon! http://marinas.com/view/lighthouse/1480_Low_Point_Lighthouse_New_Victoria_NS
