A 16 km loop from the Candy Store, Log Train Trail. Port Alberni

This is a nice loop starting and finishing from Port Alberni’s iconic Candy Store, where many hikers, runners, cyclists, quad enthusiasts park to start an outing.  We walked down the Log train trail and up Citizen’s Climb to the power lines.

We followed the powerline trail over the top to Cherry Creek’s reservoir, Lacy Lake.

From the lake we headed South and found a rare fern growing amonst the limestone on the Beaufort Mountain.

    I notice the shirt Dave is wearing on the Citizen climb, it doesn’t appear to be an official Ironman shirt, but is quite awesome…
