This is one of a series of pieces I rendered of the Hayward Lake railway trail, a trail which follows the western edge of Hayward Lake. Hayward Lake is a manmade lake, which formed around 1912 with the construction of a hydro dam at its most southern end.
I have been walking along this trail for a number of years and I have noticed there are a number number of potential paintings in this park. I could probably make 20 paintings of the various scenes found along the Hayward Lake railway trail.
In its day, the logging system railway that once ran along this lake trail was part the world's largest logging railway system, which lasted until the late 1940s. The remains of several wooden trestle bridges still remain along this trail.
