Susie Lake / Quarry Lake is part of the Blue Mountain-Birch Cove Lakes area in Halifax Regional Municipality it is easily accessible from the Bayer’s lake shopping area.
There are several paths / trail into Susie’s lake that can be a 2-3 km hike lasting one hour or can cover a larger area ( 7 – 8 km) that also joins the nearby Whooper trail system.
The easiest path to the lake runs behind the Bulk Food store (beside Kent Building Supplies) in Bayer’s Lake and the bus (#52) stops close to Kent. There is also access behind the Burger King to the WHopper bike path / trail that is very popular for mountain bike enthusiasts. If you access the trail behind the burger king you have to stay on the right and follow along behind the retail stores until you again pass behind the Kent homes Store and then continue strait untill you get to the lake. There are many side trails that lead to different parts of the lake along the way.
Susie’s Lake is rimmed with large granite boulders, cliffs and coves that make it very scenic and interesting to hike and canoe around. The lake connects to other lakes in the area making it an interesting place to canoe to multiple lakes and perhaps overnight in one of the many inlets, coves and beaches.
