Description & Services
Information From the paved road you will see the head of the Trans Canada Trail, Part 2. There is a slight incline leading to a level plateau that is a nicely groomed trail. To the right you will hear the gurgling of the Salmon River. The left side of this trail consists of a small bank along which small water falls flow draining into the river. Shortly into this hike you will come upon a steeply ascending peak that is known as the Sugarloaf. This is a great display of some of the fascinating geological formations that may be seen throughout Guysborough County, with interpretive signage that describes this formation. There are also small signs all along the trail marking kilometers traveled. Continuing on, the path remains predominantly level and you will come to a small hut that was built and is maintained by local snowmobile enthusiasts. Continuing on you will eventually come to the McAllister suspension bridge. From the bridge you will travel approximately another kilometer reaching the main paved road once again. At this point you have reached Ogden.
