This is the Bruce Trail map showing Loree Forest, the large green patch in the upper left known as the Len Gertler Memorial Forest (Len was one of the 'fathers' of efforts to protect the Niagara Escarpment 50 years ago). As you can see the trail forms almost a loop and we walked from the road in the lower centre all the way around to the road about a mile to the west.
The green area is public land and the brown patches are owned by the Bruce Trail Conservancy. If you understand contour lines you can see the dramatic difference between the flat top of the plateau where we walked and the steep slopes of the downhill ski slopes to the right.
It was quite a long walk, but eventually we came out to the top of those ski hills I showed above, the top of Georgian Peaks. The steep part is over the edge down there.
Thereafter the forest changed quite dramatically into an almost pure Sugar Maple stand, a lot more mature than we had seen so far. I was getting pretty tired at this point, but kept putting one foot in front of the other and before I knew it we were out to the road, a good 5 km. walk.
