South Brook–New Bay Loop

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

Two weeks ago four friends and I did a trip from the chalets to South Brook via Warrs road.  We had an excellent lunch at Eddies Restaurant and headed on through to Kippen’s Ridge, Seal Bay Bog, Frozen Ocean lake, 9 Mile Bog, Hodges and back to the chalets.  It was definitely one of the best trips in my life for sure!  Today, we did a the same loop and added in the leg to Roberts Arm.  I have to say, if you like hilly landscape with lots of sharp turns and beautiful views you should do this trip!  Its about 220KM of consistent pure fun!  For those of you familiar with the trip from Deer Lake to and up White River road this trip is very similar with the same kind of terrain and trails.  The only exception for the better was the leg to Roberts Arm which is like a amusement park ride with constant sharp turns and quick inclines and drops.  The trail was in really good shape until we got about two km from town where heavy traffic had made the trail way too rough to travel at a fun speed.  We turned around at this point before and headed back to continue our trip but I will never be able to pass that side trip up again.  I will be posting the track on this blog soon so if you have the time, download it and ride this loop.  You will be glad you did!
