Hike This: Brohm Lake Interpretive Forest in Squamish

    1 of 3 2 of 3

      If you've gone up the Sea to Sky Highway, chances are good that you've driven by Brohm Lake Interpretive Forest numerous times without giving it a second thought.

      However, Brohm Lake, which lies in the district of Squamish and the territory of the Squamish Nation, is definitely worth the stop, especially if you're looking for a quick and easy fall hike.

      Last weekend, I did a very pleasant three-hour, eight-kilometre loop in those woods and received sweet views of the imposing peaks in the Tantalus Range.

      Beginning at the parking lot beside Highway 99, our clockwise route followed the Bridge Trail, Cheakamus Loop Trail, High Trail, Tantalus View Trail, Connector Trail, and Brohm Lake Trail.

      Two viewpoints on the Cheakamus Loop Trail and the former fire lookout at the top of the Tantalus View Trail rewarded our mild efforts, with Alpha Mountain, Mount Dione, and Mount Tantalus dominating the scenery.

      By the way, if you like Brohm Lake, you'll also enjoy hiking at nearby Alice Lake and Levette Lake.
