Four Lakes Trail

I love the Four Lakes Trail.  It’s an easy 7km hike, with ups and downs so you’re not always going up or always going down.

It passes by some beautiful lakes, a wonderful river where a picnic is in my future and I can let the dogs off leash for part of it.

It’s not as busy as the Chief – probably because it’s mostly in the forest.  There’s no panoramic vistas to behold, just the joy of hiking.

It’s also a favourite of mountain bikers in this area.  The GearJammer Bike race runs through part of it 🙂

By about 1/2 way, the boys were starting to complain.  Andrew because he’d picked up this fairly large rock at the beginning of the trail and Luke because his feet hurt.   I tied his shoes tighter and we carried on.  He needs better shoes for hiking.

Andrew’s rock got passed around between all of us :p

We did it in about 2 hours.  I’m sure that as I get in better shape, I will be able to do it faster, but it was a nice pace.

It started out a grey, overcast day, and by the time we got to Alice Lake, it was pouring…. we all got soaked, but had a good time.

Now – bath time.

Hot water, a book, and a coffee… ahhhhh… perfect interlude in a lovely day.
