Chain Of Lakes Trail

(Beechville Lakeside Timberlea)

Trail Summary

 Very well maintained trail.

 Well marked.

 Easy access to highway throughout.

 Runs into/through some busy spots.

 Bugs can be bad.

The BLT Rails to Trails is a 9.25km long trail that runs from Lakeside to Hubley.† A good starting point is behind the old coke plant in the Lakeside industrial park, as there is plenty of parking and is an easy access point.† The BLT trail is part of the larger Saint Margaretís Bay rails-to-trail system. The trail is very well maintained, flat well groomed gravel throughout.† Since the trail is not a loop, and is quite long, it is best to keep this in mind if you plan on returning where you started.† The trail is used by joggers, dog walkers, bikers and ATVís.† At various points throughout the trail you have to cross some busy streets and as such you should obey the signage and stop and look before you cross.† The trail runs parallel to the highway, but you are far enough away at most areas so it doesnít spoil it.† There are some nice spots to view along the way, but it is not the greatest place if you are going in search of serenity.
