Default Strathcona Hikes in June

Will be in Parksville for 5 days the first week of June. We have never hiked on the island and we are looking for hiking suggestions in Strathcona. 10 to 15 km trails. We have snowshoes. Thanks

Easiest place to get to would be Mt. Washington ski area. In June usually there is a lot of snow in Strathcona.

You will indeed need snowshoes in Strathcona park in early June! check past trip reports here http://comoxhiking.com/init/archive/index and past conditions reports here http://strathconapark.org/2012/06/
You can also check Mt Washington ski resort conditions & web cams here http://www.mountwashington.ca/weathe...ow-report.html

You can also easily access the alpine via the plowed Forbidden Plateau Road. This leads to Strathcona's Eastern side near the defunct ski park. It goes through fairly easy terrain to Mt Becher, Indianhead Mtn, Mt Drabble and further to Mt Washington. Look up www.wildisle.ca for links to more info.
