Description

The trail travels through the woods near Frying Pan lake and then travels through a narrow valley. In the narrow valley the trail passes by some really interesting rock outcrops and small cliffs. The most interesting being a bunch of molded, layered rocks. After the rocky outcrops the trail dips down into a more dense mixedwood forest. The trail has a few more wet, muddy areas in this section.

The trail passes under a powerline and the Carnage Trail. It then re-enters the woods. After a short distance the trail comes out to the Trans Canada Trail.
