Mt. Killam trail run
I'm not sure if this was more of a hike than a run, or maybe more of a run than a hike. Regardless, the trail was as steep as I remember it being the last time I was up this way around 7 years ago.
The trail does seem to be in much better shape, a more visible path, clearer flagging which is nice to see. Granted, this is Gambier so treefall and overgrowth are still prevalent. I started from West Bay and utilized part of the newer 'Mountain Road' trails that were put in a couple of years back. It is a much nicer route as you avoid the long road approach through the recent ugly cutblocks.
Denied views at the lookout but still a great morning out. Gambier never disappoints!
