Eight of us hiked north on the old Little Main Lake logging road. This trail has received lots of maintenance this spring which was much appreciated. The old, grassy, undulating road led us to Stramberg Creek which we crossed without difficulty. From there the route is a narrow, flagged trail, but still quite well used and easy to follow. The path meanders through the forest past an impressive old Douglas fir, crosses a wetland before gradually ascending a glade with many old Douglas firs. We stopped here for lunch before heading back. It was a hot, humid day and we were happy to swim in Stramberg Lake from the swim rock before heading home. 9.3 km; 4½ hours.
