What title do you give a walk that embraces sections of no fewer than five trails in Golden Ears Provincial Park: Spirea, Bog, Lookout, Menzies and Loop? Our suggestion, as above, takes account of the fact that part of the route is on the lower slopes of Alouette Mountain, that it provides a circuit and that much of it is a self-guiding nature trail, the placards increasing your knowledge of forest lore as you walk along. Add to those things interesting stretches of marsh complete with sphagnum moss and skunk cabbage, a seventy-year-old forest of hemlock that restored the tree cover after fire had devastated the valley, a lookout over Alouette Lake and even a picnic table by its shore at the end of your outing, if you so desire.
