A short hike, on this scenic trail, on a cool overcast day in early spring. Glen Major Forest showcases several headwater types, gigantic trees and a regenerated gravel pit. There are a large number of hills that the trail goes around and up and down. As noted, extremely rugged with narrow & hilly terrain.
This trail is just down the road from Walkers Woods that the TPS has also visited.
On this trip, I walked to G17. From the starting point of G24 and back, round trip was 2.2KM. Next trip I plan to go to the Lookout by G16.
It's interesting how the have restored the old quarry pits and how much life has come back.
Between G22 and G17 are the remains of the Hopkin's Homestead.
I believe this is likely the old house
The pictures below showed a larger foundation and I suspect was the barn.
This is as far as I got at G17 (they have a great trail marking system). I think the hill shown is the Lookout. You can see the trail winding is way around.
It's very scenic. More so once the leaves are out.
Here's a few shots from the trail.
