The Howe Sound Crest Trail is a scenic high-level route that stretches 30 km (20 mi) from Cypress Provincial Park in the south to just before Porteau Cove Provincial Park in the north. Described here is a section of the northern part of this trail, from its northern terminus on Highway 99 south to Brunswick Lake. En route you also pass Deeks and Hanover Lakes. Deeks Lake was enlarged to its present form about 90 years ago, when it was dammed to provide water for a gravel-extracting operation. This trip can also be done as part of a one-day crossover to Lions Bay if you want something shorter than the complete Howe Sound Crest Trail.
