The trail south of Hope Bay is an easy hike until the escarpment. We start our tour with hikers coming down the escarpment, then out to the parking lot. The Bruce Trail follows the road around Hope Bay. The shore of the bay is sand. We enter the trail again at the north end of the community. This trail is easy but uneventful until the Pot Holes and could take an hour to get to them. Hikers told us that there is a good lookout half an hour past the Pot Holes.
