As a preview to the guided hike on Saturday, I did the trek to Croteau Lake via Battleship Lake & returned via the Lake Helen Mackenzie loop. The trails are all in great shape & the weather was (and will continue to be) excellent.
Getting beyond Paradise Meadows is a chance to see some flowers that aren’t found in the meadows area, but are more typical in the woods & rocky bluffs heading for the lakes & the Plateau beyond.
Saturday’s hike with naturalist Robin Harrison starts at the Wilderness Centre at 9 a.m. – it should be an easy pace, about 6 hrs. total, with lots of time to look at flowers.
