This hike was all within Main Lake Provincial Park on an old trail that has recently been restored by Quadra Trail Committee volunteers. Eight of us drove to a pull-out on the Surge Narrows Road (identified by a cell-reception sign) and started hiking at 10:00. Even though the temperature was lower than previous days, it was still hot even in the shade of the forest.
The trail descends steadily, first through ferns with occasional muddy spots and we arrived at Main Lake where we stopped for a snack before carrying on to Yeatman Bay on Okisollo Channel. No one braved an ocean swim, but as soon as we got back to Main Lake several hikers jumped in for a refreshing dip. After lunch at the lake, we hiked back to the cars.
Walking time: 3 hours total trip time: 4.5 hours distance 10 km
