Call me crazy but I’m doing this a 5th time.
Where: Fitzpatrick Mountain, Scotsburn
Difficulty: Intermediate to Enthusiastic Beginner
Ride Fitzpatrick Mountain: 1pm until supper.
No shuttling. I have found a route that includes climbing om a fire road and still allows us to hit the sweet downs.
I’m considering doing a shuttle ride for kids in the morning if there is interest. It would be a bring-your-own-kid type thing. The trails are rough though if you have never been there.
Let me know what you think, like always, I’ll be there that’s for sure. – Cheers!
It’s a nice family friendly campground.
10k rails to trails ride from Fitzpatrick.
Covered community eating area.
Swimming pool and Pirate Ship for the kids
PS: Anitra is still adamant that she ain’t cookin’ for y’all, but maybe I can throw a hot dog on the grill for you!
PPS: Feel free to do a day trip and join us on the hill if you don’t feel like camping.
Highlights in the area:
Uncle Leo’s Fine Ale - Pictou (just minutes from Birchwood, brewery only not a pub though)
Pictou County Pizza from Acropole Pizza in Pictou
Smith Rock Chalets - If you don’t feel like camping, get a cabin right on the hill.
There are awesome beaches in the area too. Caribou Provincial park is a nice family campground as well.
- Going, see you there!
- Wish I could, maybe next time.
- Maybe, I’ll let you know.
