Tantalus View Lookout - High & Cheakamus Loop Trails, November 2020



Another fine November day, another reason to milk the last of the hiking season before the lifts start spinning and my priorities inevitably change. Never been to Brohm Lake before and always wondered what all the fuss was about, with the always-full parking lot and such. Yes, it is a fine place to burn a summer afternoon, relaxing on the lakeside slabs and enjoying a refreshing dip, but there's more to it than meets the eye! Set amongst a beautiful forest, the park has several trails that circle the lake and climb up to viewpoints overlooking the Cheakamus River with outstanding panoramas of the Tantalus Range. From the main parking lot, I did a counter clockwise loop around the lake and took the longer, more scenic route following High Trail and Cheakamus Loop Trail before returning back via the wooden bridge at south end of the lake. With a lovely lake, lush forest, stunning mountain and river valley views, this is a great little outing perfect for the Fall and Winter seasons!

Croker Lookout & Little Horn - Dilly Dally Trail, November 2020



Damn, a couple months shy of a year in the backlog here! Wait a bit longer and I could just pretend the posts are current. Anyhoo...

Went for this on a damp and dark November day because well, the mountains were calling, and the objective seemed fitting for the time of year and conditions. The allure of this hike is Croker Lookout which amounts to a neat view framed by trees of Indian Arm with Croker Island lying there in the middle. Nearby Little Horn Mountain provides a named summit to satisfy the peakbagger in us, although there's not much of a view from its treed summit other than a glimpse of the Vancouver skyline with a sliver of Burrard inlet as well as a peekaboo view of Buntzen Lake. I was familiar with the approach, having previously hiked the Diez Vistas and Swan Falls loop trails, both of which start from Buntzen Lake. Fun little area to explore, not far from home and just enough of an "out there" feel for both dog and human!
