  1. Sandhills Rd – Berlett’s Rd: km 83.3 to 86.2

The trail turns left (N) onto Sandhills Rd for 50 m. It then turns right (E) entering a little-used lane (rope across the entrance). The trail winds generally in a south-easterly direction, eventually exiting at the corner of the bush at a fence line.  It continues east alternatively along a field and through hardwood lots before reaching a bridge over a drain. (The bridge, and the route easterly beyond it, is now closed.) The trail now veers right (SE) following the western edge of a drain in an arc till Bamberg Creek is reached. It turns right (W) following the Bamberg Creek briefly before crossing the creek over a wooden bridge. It then heads southwesterly through light bush for about 150 m before reaching a gravel driveway where the driveway bends. Here it turns left (S) and follows the gravel driveway southward to Berlett’s Road.

Note:  This new route removes about 2 km of walking on road and adds about 3 km cross country for an increase of about 1 km.
