Strathcona Park - Raven Lodge to Kwai Lake & Return
 
5 Attachment(s)
Completed the Kwai Lake Loop last week. It was over 13 years since I last completed it, so thought it was time to give it another go.

Started at Raven Lodge trailhead, to Lake Helen MacKenzie to Kwai Lake, and back along Battleship Lake. My GPS said about 17 km round trip, while hiking partner had almost 22 km on her fit bit.

Trail was good in places, and quite muddy in others. Light misty rain to start the hike, to heavy overcast, and then light to steady rain from Battleship Lake back to the trail head.

Passed a few groups of hikers, but overall the trail was not too busy.

There were 3 locations that harboured wasp nests. Thankfully they areas were previously marked with red flagging tape, allowing us to exercise caution and not get stung.

Overall a great hike, despite the muddy sections, and inclement weather.

Planned to go into Strathcona a couple summers ago but got smoked out. Interesting the discrepancies between the gps and fitbit.
