It starts at New Brighton where it follows the road system that soon ends as you enter crown land. There are both hills and flatter spots. You pass by Lilypad Lake. The final descent to Gambier Lake is steep and sometimes slippery. Trail 2 - MUSKEG LAKE to DAMSOON LAKE             TRAIL CLOSED DUE TO UNSAFE BRIDGE     Markers: White  Time:3.5hrs Difficulty:4/5               The lower part of this trail is moderate and pleasant up to Muskeg Lake but after that the route becomes very steep with unstable footing due to loose and slippery rocks. Part of the route is overgrown with young hemlocks. Note the old growth yellow cedar at high elevations between #7 and #9. Trail 3 - GAMBIER LAKE to DAMSOON LAKE Markers: white Time: 1hr 20min  Difficulty: 5/5               Damsoon Lake is the most inaccessible of GambierÂ’s lakes and the trail from Gambier Lake is very steep, requiring the use of hands in a few places but do-able by strong hikers. Watch for the trail junction that continues to Damsoon Lake. Section #9 to #10 is a walk along an old logging road. Trail 4 - WHITE TRAIL at  to LIDDELL SUMMIT  Markers: white/black Time: 1hr Difficulty: 5/5               The first two thirds of the trail follows an old skid road, which can be wet and slippery. The last third is a simple trail through thick bush, with one minor final scramble onto a small rock plateau - the summit. Trail 5 - GAMBIER LAKE to LATONA BEACH Markers: yellow Time: 55 min  Difficulty: 5/5 The trail follows an old logging road that gets rocky and sometimes slippery as the trail gets steep at the north end. The lower area has been partially logged resulting in the loss of some markers. Trail 6 - CAMP ARTABAN to LOST LAKE     Markers: blue Time: 2 hr  Difficulty:2/5 This is a pleasant low elevation hike to a secluded little lake. Please treat the ecologically sensitive area of wetland around the lake with extreme care. Trail 7 - LOST LAKE to DOUGLAS BAY    Markers: blue Time: 1 hr   Difficulty: 2/5       The route from Lost Lake to Douglas Bay is a pleasant hike although the very last section to Douglas Bay is steep. Watch your step walking on the old corduroy roads between these two points. Trail 8 - GAMBIER LAKE to DOUGLAS BAY   Markers: red   Time: 2 hrs   Difficulty: 3/5 This is a long and varied hike. The toughest stretch is the very steep hill between points 13 and 14 which on a sunny day is hot and dry; it is very demanding going both ways. The hiker will eventually reach a privately owned and heavily logged open area, about 30 minutes from shore. There are markers that lead to Gambier Creek and a beautiful waterfall and pool on Crown land. Trail 9- GAMBIER LAKE to LOST LAKE Markers: black on yellow  Time: 2.5 hrs Difficulty:3/5 This is a long and varied hike. The toughest stretch is the very steep hill between points 13 and 14. It is very demanding going both ways. The segment between point 14 and 15 is moderately difficult and while well marked the trail is non-existent. Trail 10 - GRAVEL PIT to MT KILLAM    Markers: grey Time: 3 hrs Difficulty: 5/5      This hike has some variety: the first half, through the woodlot, is an amble; the second half is an uphill trudge. However, only the last 15 minutes are steep enough to require the occasional use of hands. The view from the top is outstanding. The rotting footbridge crossing Whispering Creek is unsafe. Note: the right turn onto an old logging road is only 15 minutes north from the gravel pit. Trail 11 - BLUE TRAIL at  to BRIGADE BAY     Markers: pink Time: 20 min Difficulty: 1/5 Easy short walk along a wide, flat path used for riding. Trail 12 - CAMP FIRCOM to MT ARTABAN    Markers: round orange metal Time: 2 hrs   Difficulty:3/5  This is an excellent, if winding hike. It goes through maple and alder groves, a logged area, alongside a ridge, and finally up a wide gully full of old growth fir and cedar. The views from the top are splendid. Trail 13 - WHITE TRAIL at  (Brigade Bay) to MT ARTABAN  Markers:red  Time: 2hrs   Difficulty: 3/5 This hike is a quite uninspiring climb up a moderately steep, occasionally wet hillside, but the views from the last quarter and the top are superb. Note: because of the clearing that has occurred the turn-off at junction 23 can be easy to miss. Trail 15 - PINK TRAIL at  to BURT'S BLUFF   Markers: green Time: 1.5 hrs  Difficulty: 3/5 Affords a stunning view looking south and southwest. This trail, while easy to follow, has some very steep sections in the second half. Please respect the sensitive moss covered rock outcroppings. Trail 16 - CAMP FIRCOM to BRIGADE BAY   Markers: white Time:2 hrs 15 min  Difficulty: 2/5 After leaving Camp Fircom you will enter Halkett Bay Marine Park that has boat access and a picnic site. When you reach the logging road you are on private land with stunning views of Howe Sound.
