This trail is located within the city of Nanaimo. This ride combines the smooth-rolling surface of Westwood Lake Trail with a steep combination of technical riding and a short, steep hike-a-bike. The end result of this effort is a premier view of the Nanaimo region. The entire route includes the Westwood Lake Loop along the this loop for a total distance of 8.55 km (5.13 miles). Although many riders will be tempted to forego this ride due to the hike-a-bike section, the view form the summit is without equal. Rising above the entire city, you can drink in unobstructed views all the way to Gabriola Island, the Northumberland Channel, and the Strait of Georgia.
