Linked Trails The Tar Vat Bay Trail can be linked with the Lighthouse Trail to create a longer hike.

This trail is not a loop and hikers must return along the same path.

The trailhead can be found at the parking lot for the East Lighthouse.

Tar Vat Bay Trail leads through the forest to Pond Point and back following Georgian Bay. The trail gets its name from a small bay .where local commercial fishermen of the late-1800s and early-1900s regularly tarred their nets to prevent them from deteriorating so quickly.

As you continue east past Pond Point, there is an easy scramble up an outcrop at bayside which  leads to a great view of Killarney Ridge.
