Crowbar Lake Trail offers a scenic and challenging hike within the HRM. The trail is located deep in the woods in Porters Lake, which means the heat can get oppressive. We recommend this fabulous trail for a cooler day. The trail is a total of about 9 km each way (or 18 km return). We’ve only hiked the first 4 km, which brings you to the first significant body of water, Granite Lake. There are some limited trail maps along the way, and the trail is marked with red metal markers on trees, but there are no kilometre markers. We recommend snapping a photo of the trail map so you can refer to it as you hike.
