Fun hike, we only went up the the lily pond lookout (funky little tree up there). Some of the trail had water flowing down it. A few little creek crossings, and the bridges that we came across need a bit of fixing up. Beautiful lookouts! (ignore my recording, my gps was super wonky)

Well marked trail with signage and cairns. First portion is a significant uphill via an old rocky logging road and/or stream bed. Second portion through the forest is stunning and more rolling hills to the lakes. Go for a swim - the water is temperate and very clean. Hike up to Seymour Peak is a bit more scrambling with more climbing. Easy enough to do with good footwear and if you’re in moderate fitness. There is a preliminary view point on the way to the final Seymour Summit. Hiking boots recommended. Pack adéquate water and snacks, and a bathing suit. I would do this hike again.

First to Review

This is an absolutely fantastic trail, well worth the effort and with spectacular views at the top. It’s definitely a hard trail and you need good waterproof hiking boots, sun protection, a proper map and food/ drinks. We saw other hikers on the route but it was quiet overall and you could quite easily encounter no one at all. It’s really just a hikers trail, there were no mountain bikers, horse riders or other trail users. The 3G/4G and phone signals are patchy so bear this in mind. The trail starts with an ascent which is fairly good going, thankfully you’re under shade throughout. There are orange ribbons on the way up that mark view points and it’s worth following them. The trail is very well signposted throughout. Before you get to Nugedzi Lake there is the option of a little détour to Lily Pond Lookover, which we took- don’t miss the great views at the end if you carry on past the lake. Then retrace your steps to rejoin the trail through to Nugedzi Lake. The forest is beautiful and mossy. You lose the shade as the trail opens out at the lake. There are lots of nice spots to take a break here. We took the little lake loop and rejoined the trail to Seymour Mountain afterwards. As you proceed to the mountain you have the option of taking a small narrow trail up to the summit but the tree the sign is attached to has fallen down, someone helpfully has left the sign pointing towards the summit trail - you could miss it otherwise it’s narrow. The summit trail is steep in several places with a bit of scrambling- we managed this with a nine month old in a sling so it’s not that bad but be aware. It’s well worth the extra effort to get to the summit if you can, the views across the gulf islands are fabulous. If you can’t do the summit I would still recommend doing this trail, it’s beautiful hiking. We didn’t come back the way we came, we came back down on the Mount Seymour trail, which was fairly unremarkable with quite a bit of blowdown. You’ll probably want to just get down the mountain by this point as it’s a long hike. We thought this was the best hike we’ve done on either Quadra or Vancouver Island
