There were some good views, but the trail itself was very poorly marked. Part of the trail took us through a marsh like area, causing wet shoes. If you are up for an adventure then this is for you .

Did this last Sunday. Be aware that I saw some relatively fresh bear scat on the trail, as well as some really really really old scat. As the sign at the parking lot mentions, there are bears around the parking lot area, and there have been break ins into vehicles. I did this after hiking up Yumnuska to the scenic ridge (if you know, you know) in an attempt to find Big Choss (yeah so apparently it was the wrong way haha). The view of Yumnuska from the second lake is beautiful. IT would be a great place for grad photos or wedding photos because you have Yumnuska nearly centered in the background. It would also be really peaceful to kayak on if you want to hike that in. Don't do the loop, just go out and back. Just go to the second lake/pond, grab your views, and return the same way. If you're up for bushwhacking, try to follow other trails, but these are mostly game trails. If you continue straight, you'll hit a barbed wire fence (this is where I turned around). Overall 3 stars because I prefer peak bagging, but if you want a quick (I'd say 1 hour) out n' back with wetlands and a bottom-up view of Yam, then go for it. It's worth the hike. NOTE: I'd bring a long sleeve shirt. This hike passes close to wetlands so there will be bugs and plants that will be brushing you in some areas. To do the route I did, take the road west (beyond the gate) until you see the first turn off that goes south. Follow this trail, and don't deviate from it. There are some turns that look like legit trails, but they end up just being bushwhacking trails.

Definitely more of a “nature walk” than a hike. Not marked at all. Besides the view behind us of Yamnuska not much to look at. It felt like a nice walk through a farmers field.

We enjoyed this trail, it doesn’t seem that well used so following other recordings is helpful. We saw woodpeckers, hawks, deer and a beaver in one the lakes, and not a single person.

Off trail

I wouldn't recommend this hike. The trail starts off clear as day and then you reach a meadow after the barbed wire fence and no clear trail is to be found. We ended up meandering through bush.

First to Review

Great mountain views, woodland walking with beautiful bodies of water (frozen when we went) however the trail is not always obvious, we managed to go off route a few times.
