We are getting back to the time of year where wildlife can be active around the trails again. Use caution, make lots of noise, keep dogs on leash.
LAKE TRAIL: Use caution as we have a lot of wildlife including a Mama Moose with 2 calves. If you see any wildlife, turn around and go back. Avoid going around the animal as this may not be leaving them enough space and can create a dangerous human/wildlife conflict.
RAIL TRAIL: The first bridge has been upgraded! Check it out😊
LAZY LIZARD BIKING TRAIL: Have you tried the new connector yet?! It starts about 300m above the little Hut, across from our parking lot.
OLD GROWTH TRAIL: Take your time on some of the narrow, side-hill sections. This is our top choice for the rainy days and warm days as it has a good canopy.
FIR TRAIL: The trail is in good shape. Enjoy big old trees like the Douglas Fir and Red Cedars.
SPINEBACK: This is the staff’s favorite trail and also the Moose’s favorite trail at this time of the year! Use caution and give lots of space to any wildlife to avoid a dangerous conflict. Look for mushrooms! After the rain they have exploded! Take your time coming down the talus section. The loose rocks here can be hard on knees and ankles.
GOLDILOCKS LOOP: Follow the orange dots to make sure you are on the trail. If you are scrambling, you are off trail! The back side of The Valley has been washed out, so we recommend doing this trail clockwise. The trail crew will be working on this section for the next while. Come say "Hi!".
TAMARACK TRAIL AND THE VIEWPOINT: Our new reroute is now open! Will you be the first to christen the new section?!
BALDY LOOP: Watch for loose rocks on your way down! We recommend hiking this trail counterclockwise. Once you get to the top you will see a picnic table and a bench.
BIG WHITE PEAK ROUTE: Adventure seekers, there is no trail. You will have to navigate your way through rock to find your way up to the summit from the Spineback trail.
CABIN ROUTE, LIZARD LAKE ROUTE and HEIKO’S TRAIL: Those routes have overgrown sections and a few trees down.
