This trail joins my list of North Shore hikes worth doing for the trees. Plenty of good-sized cedars, a pretty little creek or two (with a potentially treacherous canyon view on Nelson Creek) and quite a number of huge Douglas firs. Coastal rainforest at its finest. I can imagine this trail looking the same in almost any season, save for the salmonberry bushes (in fruit) and the skunk cabbage near the lake. The couple of views of the lake are nice enough, though it'd be nicer if there were someplace to sit and eat your sandwiches. I took ages on this trail, even in the pouring rain. Some of that was due to taking in the greenery around me. The rest was probably due to the huge number of muddy puddles I had to dodge.

Didn't realize it was a trek to the lake. But was glad to take a dip when I got there. Beautiful trail, nice on a summer day when you want to escape the heat and take a swim somewhere secluded.

This approx. 4 km return to parking lot hike is perfect for those rainy weekend afternoons when you don't want a long drive and feel like you just need to get out. Its also versatile for family with a variety of skills levels - there's something for everyone whether it be feathery ferns along the trail, easy 'don't have to look down too much pathways', or acoustic escape from the upper level highway traffic. Three generations hiked this trail together today and we were all impressed with the variety of everything from views (through the trees), streams and especially fungus. It was beautiful in pouring rain. While Whyte lake trail is listed as an on leash path, we did have to ask some owners with pitbulls to sit and stay after one dog jumped on one of our hikers and muddied her coat. One mountain biker respectfully pulled off the path to allow us to pass by and as we were leaving another one entered the woods. As a watershed, the area is quite pristine and not too trampled. more »
