Main Lake on Quadra Island has some nice boat-in camping spots. Not a lot of paddling to be had there, but it's quiet and has nice swimming. You can explore the lakes over a couple days.

Nice. I "discovered" the peak of Jutland in the dense fog after trying to find Mt Albert Edward for the first time. The plaque on the top was a bit of a surprise to say the least.

The times I've been there it fills up on weekends, but usually not until later in the evening. Long weekends are busiest time. If it's full there is overflow camping by the duck pond, and a couple...

What about the Sayward Lakes? There's a few nice paddle in camping spots on Amour Lake, and closer by at Mohun Lake. Main Lakes on Quadra is also really nice.

Oddly enough, I've seen people hiking in flip flops on the Cape Scott trail, as far in as the fields. I was surprised they made it that far.
But I'd never recommend doing that.

Welcome!


Have you already done Della this year? It's down to a trickle due to the dry year, hence it's probably not a good year to go if you're hoping to see the falls.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments.

Phillips Ridge would be my choice for a return trip. It's easy to follow, quicker, and has lots to offer. Plus, if you didn't make the summit, you'd still...

I'd cook pasta right from the box if it wasn't for the weight and fuel it takes to cook. Reconstituting the dehydrated pasta takes longer overall time, but less cooking time. I usually set up camp...

Hey thanks for those tips. We'll shoot to come off the mountain on summit day like you suggest, and head for Carter. Looks like the weather is going to be clear and hot.

Circlet has older pads with no hooks, and there are rocks all around that people use.
