Gambier Lake & Strike Lake
Hi, I'm researching some short-ish hikes that we can do with our kids that will take us to a campsite. I first posted in the main BC hiking forum before I realized there was a Hiking With Kids forum. The other thread already has a couple of good ideas (Lindeman, Stein to Loop Camp, Upper Skagit).
I'm also quite interested in the hike to Gambier Lake as well as Strike Lake in Manning Park. As for Gambier Lake, would it be possible to take a Chariot stroller (using the jogging wheel) for that trail? 7km is definitely too long for our kids, which will be 3.5 and 5 this summer. As for Strike Lake, it sounds like it has limited camping available and I have no idea on what strategies a person uses to ensure a spot. I guess the earlier the start the better but ideally our day would start out in Vancouver, not Lightning Lake.
