The day started off rainy so we decided to leave a little later in the morning hoping it would clear up some ( or at least stop pouring rain).
Followed the old railway track to the trail head, then climb straight up for a km to reach the first look-out. Amazing view over Cameron Lake with a couple of benches to kick back and enjoy the view.
Off through the forest trail , our next view was on the other side of the ridge. Here we sat and took in the beauty of the Salish Sea and Mt Arrowsmith. Hearing Sarrie scream, I was able to capture a pic of our local Garter snake…
Following the trail to our next lookout of Cameron Lake. It was so windy and the drop offs were a wee bit hairy !
About 6 km we saw another trail leading off to a rock bluff, always ready to explore we came across this view of the wide open spaces !
After 9 km of hiking through the awe inspiring trail, looking at how mother nature can blow down some massive trees ,we finally reached Mt Wesley, no views from there. The choice was to keep going onto Cathedral Grove and hitch hike or run back along the road . We decided to turn around and take the trail out. The trail won….it always does.
