Barren Lake (Liscomb Game Sanctary)

Average Rating:    (3 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

Old logging road at the beginning changing to ATV trail. Its about 8km in, for a total of 16km. Gets technical with some nice boulders, ruts and hills the further in you go. The reward is the view of Barren Lake at the end, a great place to stop and appreciate that your about 4 or 5km into the woods. On the left after about 4km is an ATV trail that goes down into the woods, stumps, holes, you wont make it without comming off! But at the end is a great view of Rush Lake. Comming back is a little easier as your going slightly up hill. The ride out can be as fast or as slow as you like. Take lots of water, go with someone, its a long way out to civilisation!

Trail Directions
Head for Trafalfar, which is the North entrance to the Liscomb Game Sanctuary, take the paved road that goes through the Sanctuary to the Seloams lake road, this is on your left about 10-15km down. Look at a map, finding it will be a lot easier. Travel the Seloams lake road until you get to the boundry of the Sanctuary, this is a bridge in which a good sized brook flows underneath. Travel past the bridge and the trail is the second entrance into the woods on the left hand side. Not to hard to find, its a long way out there but very worth it if you like real wilderness biking.

Summary:
Second time in cruising this first class trail. Rough getting there now with some snow on the ground. Road washed out in some areas, beware of this at 4 mile mark. A liitle indication of Moose here and there. Stayed overnight at the lake at the end of trail. COLD!!!! but well worth it.

Recommended Route:
Straight-ahead.... no stalling....just do it!!!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
The Tillmann Brook Area near Miller Lake Halifax County. Check out the dam at Soldier lake and the century old Gold mine near the mouth of the Tillmann Brook, cool place to hike or ride. Watch out for the "very" deep water filled, open gold pit!! Kyle Brandon Tillmann of Lr. Sackville recommends this place too, having hiked it several times.

Reviewed by: Mark , from Whitehill, N.S.

Summary:
A fun, wilderness trail thats really out in the boonies! Starts off as an old logging road and gets better as it goes in. Eventually turns into an ATV trail with some nice hills, boulders, ruts etc, muddy in a coulple of sections. Lots of hills and woods all around, no clear cuts. Worth the trip if you like biking in the middle of no where.

Recommended Route:
As on trail description
