Lost Lake Trail.

The clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness.” ~ John Muir

While we were camping at Elk Falls Provincial Park,  we did The Lost Lake Trail in the Snowden near Campbell River on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.


“The trailhead for Lost Lake Trail is at the Brothers Creek Trail bridge crossing. 

The trail starts from the eastern side of the bridge and rises gradually up to Lost Lake. At Lost Lake, the trail goes west crossing a number of creeks before ending at the Blue Gentian Lake Trail and boardwalk. The route is fairly easy to find, with the exception of a number of smaller side trails in and around Lost Lake. Just make sure that you watch for the trail markers in the trees.” – Hiking Project.

It was a lovely hike, we met friendly hikers and cyclists along the way. I couldn’t find any information online, but I remember the loop being about 6 Kilometers long.

Easy to intermediate cycling and hiking trails along old railway grades.“- Go Campbell River 

Erik got a lot of attention, enjoyed it very much and was quite tired afterwards.
