Bay Lake Circuit
April 14, 2012
We visited our good friends Vicky and Alysha at their Bay Lake home near Brancroft in early April. When visiting, we often go for nature walks in the woods and hills around Bay Lake. Alysha mentioned that it would be handy to know and have a good route that connected all of the various back roads, tracks and paths into an actual circuit of the lake. So, this time around, we decided to document such a route.

This short image gallery and map, therefore, provide a quick overview of the route required to make a hiking, walking or running circumnavigation of Bay Lake, near Bancroft Ontario.
