Petgill Lake Professional Review and Guide
"Although it makes a popular hike for a warm day because it winds through shady woods, the trail to Petgill Lake is also suited to winter walking, since its high point is only 760 m (2500 ft) above sea level. This pleasant little lake is in a bowl, so to widen the aspect there is a short trail past the lake to a viewpoint looking out over Howe Sound. If you desire some extra challenge, the trail to Goat Ridge gives you a much more strenuous hike, adding another 990 m (3240 ft) of climbing on a route that is sketchy here and there. On the ridge are attractive meadows and ponds and a close-up view of Sky Pilot Mountain, while Mount Garibaldi and Mamquam Mountain fill in the scene to the north and northeast."
