Start at the new parking lot at Witchcraft Lake. There is a lot of scree on the westerly and ridge trails. All in all a great workout.

I couldn’t complete the loop due to logging activities in the VIU woodlot

When was here it was very icy/snowy. Crampons would have helped. Was a nice accomplishment getting to the flag
