In the early years of this century, what is now the most popular part of Golden Ears Provincial Park—the Alouette Valley—was the scene of intense logging operations. Although those days are long gone, there is still evidence of their existence in the artifacts to be found along many of the trails, some of which also follow the old railroad grades. Such a trail is the one to Alouette Mountain. Although this trail is long, for the most part it has an easy grade and its woodland stretches give pleasant walking on sunny days. It is interesting to contrast the second-growth timber of the lower stretches with the original tree cover at higher elevations—the stands of mountain hemlock and yellow cedar near Lake Beautiful being of impressive dimensions and venerable age. From the top, Blanshard Peak and Edge Peak are prominent to the north and Mounts Judge Howay and Robie Reid to the northeast.
