TRAIL GUIDE

001 - 002 | 1.0 kmBeginning with the large map “Walker Woods and Glen Major Forest” take the trail to the left with a post marked 8. At a roadside parking area take the path to the right that moves away from the road. At signpost 11 keep to the right on the main trail (002).

002 - 003 | 1.4 kmPassing through a small meadow the trail curves and comes to another Y intersection. Take the more travelled path to the right (003).

003 - 004 | 2.0 kmImmediately after the above waypoint there is another Y intersection and instead of going uphill go left along a more level area with the blue signpost. At a post at a T-intersection marked 10 turn left and take the West Walker Loop southbound (004). This is labelled the Trans Canada Trail.

004 - 005 | 3.2 kmIgnore a number of smaller side trails and stay on the Trans Canada Trail with the blue blazes. The trail traverses along an open meadow and passes signpost 13 where we continue straight ahead (no side trail). At post 14 (005) the Trans Canada Trail goes off to the left while we continue straight ahead on the blue marked trail.

005 - 006 | 4.8 kmAt a cross intersection a blue marker indicates to keep to the right (006).

006 - 007 | 5.1 kmThe trail continues to the right through a coniferous forest and arrives at a small bush road (007).

007 - 008 | 5.3 kmTurn left here (the blue markers seem to disappear) instead of going straight ahead and head north up to the Concession Road. At a cross intersection the blue blazes reappear. Cross the intersection and head straight ahead into the woods (008).

008 - 009 | 6.2 kmAt a T-intersection marked by signpost 6 keep right. Immediately after this another trail goes north so turn left onto this trail which takes you north up to Albright Road (Sideroad 10). Go left along this road. The trail passes a long orange gate arriving at a main road with a huge Canadian flag straight ahead and a white barn  and a white bungalow house to the left. This is Concession Road 6 (009).

009 - 010 | 6.7 kmTurn right on Concession Road 6 heading north for 500 m to the entrance on the left into the Northern Tract of Walker Woods (010) which has 16 km of trails in a 125 hectare forest.

010 - 011 | 9.3 kmOver the stile and into the woods take the Al Shaw Trail to the right at signpost 4 (011).

011 - 012 | 10.1 kmThe trail is marked with blue blazes. At a cross intersection continue straight ahead. Turn right and continue following the blue blazes. At signpost 2 keep to the right. At a T-intersection keep left. At signpost 1 the blue trail continues to the left. We meet signpost 3 just before the stile to the right (011).

012 - 010 | 11.1 kmHead left along the trail marked with the blue blazes. A long walk in a straight line brings you back to Concession Road 6 and waypoint (010).

010 - 009 | 11.6 kmTurn right on concession 6 and you will soon arrive back at waypoint (009) at Albright Road.

009 - 013 | 12.3 kmTurn left onto Albright Road and follow this road past your former entrnace onto the road until you see a path on the right heading back into the woods (013).

013 - 014 | 12.6 kmKeep to the left on the NE Walker Loop (014).

014 - 001 | 14.1 kmFollow the trail back to the parking lot and the start of the hike (001).
Enjoy the hike and the day!
