There’s nothing I love more than finding lesser-known hiking spots. This past weekend, a few friends and I trekked through the Gully Lake Wilderness Area located near Earltown. The forested area features two large hiking loops for hikers of all levels. The Sandy Cope Lake Trail boasts 6.4 km while more advanced hikers might prefer the Gully Lake trail with a total length of 10 km. We opted for the Sandy Cope Lake Trail and were not disappointed.
We eventually made it back to the car and decided to make a day of it. We headed to the one store in Earltown, the Earltown General Store (blink and you’ll miss it!), and cooled off with drinks and ice cream. I highly recommend their Oxford Blueberry ice cream. Local and delicious!
We (finally!) had our picnic lunch down by the water in Tatamagouche. Clearly we were excited about it.
And of course we got to enjoy this beautiful view!
