Burke Mountain Woodland Trail

Burke Mountain Woodland Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This short hike on the lower slope of Burke Mountain is one of several marked out and maintained by the Burke Mountain Naturalists as part of their efforts to promote the preservation of the Burke Mountain/Pinecone Lake wilderness area as a park. The route uses old logging roads and forest paths to reach its end at a breathtaking waterfall.

Be sure to include the Upper Loop Trail: it is impossible not to catch the spirit of the long-gone majestic forest as you walk the old skid roads among the stumps and shells of giant cedars. Other relics of logging days are there for you to discover."

Great little family hiking trail! Did this with my brother-in-law, wife, 5 year old son and 2 year old daughter strapped to my back. The 200m elevation gain and 7km distance was just perfect for a 5 year old, never mind, two parents trying to get back into hiking again. We walked straight to the falls along the lower Woodland trail.

The return journey took us by way of the Upper Loop trail. Be sure to include the Upper Loop trail as part of your trek. It offers a peaceful walk amidst some massive tree stumps that have been left behind from the days of logging. A definite must see! My wife actually found and old log splitting wedge.

The only drawback to this trail was the constant sounds of rifles bellowing out from local gun club situated at the head of the trail. However, once you got deeper into the forest the sounds became somewhat muffled. When the gun fire finally did cease the journey became quite pleasant.

Despite the rumblings from the gun club I would have no hesitation recommending this trail.
