Big Indian Lake Loop

Has anyone done the Big Indian Lake Loop ride recently? or ever?
It’s been described to me as fire road and double-track, but I’m also curious about the condition from start to finish. I’ve read there is a river crossing too…
Any additional info would be great.

Just to be clear you mean this Big Indian Lake (there are more than one in NS):,-63.9180984,13z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x4b59912681794f3b:0xf3b2aec5a6a59114!8m2!3d44.806311!4d-63.9211596

I’ve been on some of that road on the NW side of the lake coming from the Hants County end, It’s a hard packed logging road sees lots of atv traffic and drains well, you could do it on a cross bike no prob. Can’t comment on any water crossings.

Way late, but…

Did this today. The only sensible place i could see via Google Maps to attempt to cross the river was easy enough to cross. The problem is that there’s about a kilometer of waking – through an old clear cut with lots of raspberry bushes and the usual debris and then some bushwacking through small, tightly spaced trees. Wouldn’t be terrible without a bike; not fun with one. I looked around and saw no evidence of an easier way.

The roads are in decent shape though, so the riding was fine.
