Description

This portion of Corridor #220, called the Bowles Trail, starts off Corridor 19 at Junction 1. The trail heads west, just south of Canoe King, then crosses Route 16. A short distance from the road, there is a trail on the left that may be the remnants of Corridor #15. The trail keeps right and makes its way into White Lake State Park.

The trail follows State Park Road west towards the lake veering south at the closed gates and travels through the campground. At the end of the campground, the trail crosses Fishermen's Lane and continues westward. About 2.5 miles along the trail, it passes by Black Spruce Trail on the right, then shortly after reaches Junction 2. A right at Junction 2 will take you on Corridor #100 which leads to Barton Motor Sports.

Instead, continue left to stay on Corridor #220. The trail passes under some powerlines, by a yellow gate and climbs up a slight hill. From the top of this hill, look for a somewhat obscure path on the right. Missing this path will land you in the sandpit! The trail skirts around the eastern edge of the sandpit and even has a small sidepath that offers excellent views. **Please stay on the trail and out of the sandpit.**

The trail descends to the bottom of Page Hill Road and crosses it. It then climbs to Gardner Hill Road and crosses it. The trail continues to climb to Junction 3 and the intersection with James Pond Loop/ Corridor #110 which heads north off to the right. Continuing on #220, the trail runs 0.6 miles to Junction 4 and Binsack Trail (off to the right).

Continue for another mile where the trail ends at Junction 5. When traveling on snowmobile trails, it is important to know that the name of the trail doesn't always correspond with the number of the Corridor. With that being said, Bowles Trail continues right from here following Corridor #110. Great Hill Pond Loop travels left following Corridor #220.
