    Brothers Creek Trail

    The Brothers Creek Trail is a fun half-day hike that takes you through a thickly covered forest as it climbs its way uphill alongside the creek. Spend the day exploring trails around Cypress Provincial Park, or hang out by Blue Gentian Lake before making the technical descent back down along the trail. This is a quick little hike for when you are looking for a bit of peace and quiet or just to spend the day by a secluded lake.

    Route Description for Brothers Creek Trail

    The Brothers Creek Trail is a beautiful singletrack trail that climbs uphill through a thick covering of gorgeous West Coast forest alongside Brothers Creek. Sections of this 6.1 km out-and-back trail are fairly technical, especially on the descent, so make sure that you wear proper hiking footwear and use caution when navigating any muddy or icy terrain.

    After crossing over the wooden bridge and setting off on the trail, it will begin to climb steeply uphill, making its way through the forest as it meanders alongside Brothers Creek. As you make your way along the trail, you will eventually reach a small clearing surrounding Blue Gentian Lake. This area is a perfect spot to set up and have a picnic while enjoying the beauty of nature. After you’ve wrapped up your day around the lake, pack up your things and head back down the same trail, navigating the technical descent to return to the parking area.
