Hiking in Seeley’s Bay

HikingThere are a number of back roads that are perfect for hiking or running in Seeley’s Bay.  Three that stand out are:

The 3km loop from the village to Haskin’s Point.  Need a break in between there is a lovely seating area overlooking the water at the point and if it is really hot – take a refreshing dip in Cranberry Lake and then head back towards the village for a snack at one of the local businesses.

Up for a bit more adventure?  Try the 12km loop from the village out Simpson Road and turn right onto Back Street.  This route will take you through farm area and a canopy of trees.  In the spring you can spot wild trilliums along the roadside.

Don’t miss beautiful Rock Dunder.  Rock Dunder is a 3.7 kilometer moderately trafficked loop trail located near Leeds, Ontario, Canada that features a lake and is rated as moderate.
