Brohm Lake Forest Professional Review and Guide
"This circular hike on B.C. Forest Service trails south of Brohm Lake offers great rewards for modest effort. By good-natured trails, through varied surroundings, you make your way to a succession of viewpoints facing the majestic Tantalus Range. Notable along the way are carpets of twinflower, adorned in early summer with exquisite pink blooms. Since even easy hikers need a challenge, that, too, is provided by a climb to a lookout for a breathtaking panorama. Choose a clear day."
--Jean Cousins, Easy Hiking Around Vancouver (Greystone Books).
I live in Squamish and regularly hike the class Garibaldi Park Trails and Alice Lake. I finally went to Brohm for a change and its a very beautiful park. Granted, it is highly manicured by a logging company as a pr project, but the result makes it seem like a totally pristene park. There are very, very easy lower loops (I'd take anyone there) and then some surprisingly tough uppper trails, that get a fair amount of snow (and hence, ice--avoid this in winter).
This has become my "go to" place when I have out of towners of unknown ability--you can start out easy and then take harder options. There is a lot of pretty forest packed into a very small area.
