The 10k route takes you south past the North Shore Rd. and past the East Quarry where you’ll run next to the lake to the 10K turn around. On your return you’ll pass the East Quarry and return next to the golf course finishing with a 2 km trail run around Gull Harbour.

You’ll run next to the lake and follow the bike path all the way up to the turn around in Hecla Village, where you’ll pass by a museum of vesels and steam equipment on display from another era. On your return, you’ll see it all again from the other direction. You’ll finish next to the golf course with a 2 km trail run along the golf course and Gull Harbour.
