Surveyors Lake Loop Description

Hiking the Surveyors Lake Loop makes for a fun day outdoors that will allow you to take in the beautiful woodland scenery within Kikomun Creek Provincial Park. Due to the proximity of the trail to the Surveyors Lake Campground, this hike is the perfect accompaniment to an awesome weekend of camping. The trail itself is very well-maintained and begins in the campground, following a clockwise route between the campsites until you reach the edge of the lake. From here, continue to hike through the peaceful forest as the trail works its way around the edge of the water.
