It’s officially Fall and we are heading out on one of our fieldtrips this Sunday, October 26th!
We are heading out to Chemanius Lake which may be new to some of you. If so, the directions are: Northbound on Highway 1, after the turnoff for Chemainus look for the MacMillan Bloedell Main. There is a traffic light there. You can turn left and follow the gravel road to the trail (it’s not far, just on the other side of the stop sign), but if you go past the light on the highway and turn at the left turn lane at the very next road, River Road (no light), you will be able to drive on a paved road. The lake is on the right, about 3 minutes up the road. There is a parking lot. Allow approximately 30 minutes from Shawnigan Lake.
Due to the travel time involved let’s meet a little bit later at 8:30am
As per usual bring the usual provisions such as small snacks to share, cup to cheer, camera and happy attitude! This particular route is of a beginner level with a few ups and downs but nothing too steep. It may be a bit muddy due to the rain…. Speaking of which, dress for rain!
I’m looking forward to seeing you all and if you have any questions please feel free to email me back….
