Default Gambier Island small loop

4 of us did Gambier Island small loop(Camp Artaban to Gambier lake to New Brighton) overnight trip this past weekend, it was my third times doing this small loop and still enjoyed very much.

The difference b/w this trip from my previous trips there is we did crabbing(we got 5) and fishing(we got 4 trout) as well along with hiking this time (we brought both crabbing & fresh water fishing licenses with us).

The trail is not well maintained and need some navigation skills but we saw some volunteers were working on it, hat off to them!

I'll let our pictures tell the story:

Cyan line is our first day's route
Pink line is our second day's route

Very nice Gloria, wondered what it is like on this island.

With those huge packs on your backs, it looks like you are carrying a house.


Hiking is what keeps you young of mind and heart. When the going gets tough, the tough get going..............

for crab, we just put into the water, bring it to boil and cook around 10 mins.

for the fish soup, pan fry fishs in the butter, then put fishs into the pot with water/sliced ginger/some vodka, bring it to boil for 10 mins and turn down the heat; put sliced tofu & tomato into the soup and keep boiling them for another 15 mins, then put some green veg cook a couple mins, put some salt, then done!

I have that same floating fishing knife. For those that might wonder the "illegal inches for dishonest fishermen" side (pictured) is at a 2:1 scale compared to the legal inches. So those trout are 9" long.

mazeGirl, I always get hungry after looking at your trip reports .... really nice trip. I was up at gambier lake about three weeks ago and there was about 20 cm of snow at the lake. It looks like it's all gone?

That hike from Artaban up to lost lake and across to Gambier lake is more strenuous than people think, especially with big packs. Well done! There is a relatively new trail that heads down to west bay from gambier lake. From west bay you walk along the road over to new brighton. It's a nice alternative to climbing up the degraded trail from the lake then down to new brighton.
