Eight members and one guest from Sweden took the 8 am ferry and drove 20 km north of Campbell River to the Broken Eyes trailhead. The trail is an easy grade for the first bit, then it crosses a stream on a long, one-log bridge, then it climbs steadily. There is a viewpoint (facing north) part way up which makes a nice rest stop before resuming the climb. Eventually the trail joins an old logging road with an easier grade. The final viewpoint (facing south) is good for a long, relaxing lunch, and the views are great. After the hot dusty trail, we adjourned to Roberts Lake where some had a quick, refreshing swim. 7.4 km; 5 hours; 510 m elevation gain.
