Explore the most popular camping trails near Erin Woods with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

The Arch is a highlight! Great views! A lot of exposure at the top so if that bothers you than think twice. Reason for only 4 stars.... so so many different pathways from start to finish in this hike and a lot of them go the wrong way or other part of the loop. Use a gps or be prepared for a few wrong turns.

We did the first part of the hike (little
Elbow campsite to big elbow backcountry campsite). The trail is super flat with beautiful views. It’s only 8.7 k to the campsite which is right on the river and really beautiful. I would totally recommend!

spent all day Saturday June 30 down big elbow trail looking for geos, some areas have washed up, first bridge is gone, made it to Tombstone Backcountry Campground stayed the night =)

Night stay at Tombstone Campgrounds journeyed down Little Elbow Trail July 1st, very beautiful, nice going down the mountain the up =)

We did Tyrwhitt to Highwood— magnificent view!

The first half of this hike was fantastic, beautiful time of year to be out in the mountains. Unfortunately the conditions once we crested were extremely windy and hiking the ridge line was sketchy due to this. The way down from Pocaterra was very difficult and you need to be very aware of hikers above you sending down rocks, not for the casual hiker or faint of heart. All in all it was a great day, just be aware the the "Hard" designation is not wrong on this one.

I backpacked a piece of this trail anti-clockwise to Big Elbow back country campground and back out the same route, 20k in all. Very little elevation gain, wide open fire road, excellent views all the way of the surrounding mountains. There are 4 major washouts from the 2013 flood, 2 to be wary of. The first is the trailhead, it's gone from its original location at the Trailhead parking area. The trail has to be accessed via the suspension bridge a little further up. The second is at about 8km in, the trail is completely gone and a little skirmish up the river bank is required to get back to the trail. Temps in the high 20's in and out the next day. Camp ground had wood, an axe, toilets, bear lockups for your gear and great views. This was a training hike for me carrying 30lbs so I aimed for little elevation and short distance. My preference is elevated views hence only 3 stars

Me and a couple friends hiked this loop over 3 days, with camping planned one night at Mt Romulus backcountry campsite, and the other at Mt Tombstone backcountry campsite, and had a great time. The only concern for bikers is the LONG high pass between the two campsites (NW and SW corners of the loop), but otherwise is a good hike. We went in July, and woke up to snow the first morning, which quickly melted. The paths are good and worn for bikers and hikers alike, don't recall any real complications.
