This out and back loop traverses lots of new, silky smooth pavement. Follow Grey Rd 24 east with two right hand jogs at Conc. 2 and West Back Line. Carefully cross Hwy 10 in Holland Centre and continue on Grey Rd 30, passing Mud and Robson Lakes. At the stop, turn left and head north on Conc. 10, crossing Grey Road 40. For an amazing scenic view of the Bighead River Valley, head north (left) on Conc. 2 (gravel), as you make the sharp right hand turn towards Walters Falls, or straight on to Walters Falls. You can either retrace your steps, or head on down the hill, and then right on Grey Rd 29 back to Walters Falls. The Walters Falls Milling Company still uses waterpower to turn their turbines, and the friendly folks here make it an interesting stop for the mechanically-interested. The Falls Inn has a patio overlooking Walter Falls, and is a perfect spot for a refreshing beverage and a breather before heading back. Complete the loop east out of town and south towards Grey Road 40. Once back in Williamsford, there are the Great Books Café at the Williamsford Mill and of course across the street, the legendary Williamsford Pie Company. Your choice.
