It’s a super cute and easy hike. The lake is gorgeous year round

The actual “upper loop” takes longer than 30 minutes. It is a great hike, but you are not along the water, but rather with mountain bikers (if there are any) in the woods. Lots of side trails, so following the APP on your phone is important if you want to ensure the longer hike experience. Took our dog and she loved it!

Westwood ridge hike - great view only a 30 minute hike , we started from the end of Abot road , than walked around west wood lake until you get to the off leash dog park . You will hit power lines than head straight up !

Very icy in parts. Great views of the lake all the way around

fun trail, my kids love it, and my youngest is 3 and she's been able to do it all by herself, other than the big hill by start on the left side of the beach. there's a off leash area on the backside of the trail but rest is all on leash. bring water ;p

nothing particularly special, quite busy at all times of the year

nice walk to many joggers a bit to flat and not enough nature for me

I really enjoy this trail, its wide and well maintained. 6 km is a good distance around the lake. Mostly flat with one hilly area makes it an easy walk.

I thought it was a great hike! very moderate! good exercise without being too much, but still good workout. And the options are endless for routes especially with this app!!

4km of this is a mountain biking trail. I don’t recommend hiking the goat trail part of it. You’ll get smooshed.

nice short walk for me little pain in the arse with people riding bikes or joggers think that u have to move out their way

Fresh blackberries along the trail and nice smooth surface for running or walking. It's an easy walk around the lake surrounded by beautiful forest. I loved it, would be a great place to picnic or take the kids too. Lots of parking too, and I went this past Sunday.

I would definitely not call this a moderate hike! There are some ups and downs but all in all it's a really great walking/running loop with beautiful views of the lake. I would definitely recommend this loop to anyone looking for a nice walk or a nice run!

Great hike around the lake. Little to no elevation gain. Trail is shared among everyone, hikers, joggers and mountain bikers. Well marked and great views!

Nice walk around the lake with some great view points..
Dogs are on leash unless in the off leash area ( the off leash area not being very scenic under the power lines)

Beautiful, easy walk. We usually do this walk on Christmas when we are visiting Nanaimo.
