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.
A nice sunny day in the fall for a walk like this, about 16 km.
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.
