When you make an effort to get out on a trail you are rewarded by being surrounded by some amazing nature. Forests, mountain tops, Sea lines, Canyons are just a few of the areas that we have hiked through. Each area has its own unique flavour and no two areas in the world are ever replicated. That is mother natures gift to us. All we have to do is get out and enjoy it and make sure that humans don’t destroy it.
No problem for some people, but as a first backcountry trek? Many people may think this is crazy however if you like to prove people wrong this is the hike for you! Especially if you love a challenge.
The first day (about 12 km) and straight up a hill. This is no joke. The huffing and puffing began towards the break point, Maple Leaf Lake, about half way to our destination Maggie Lake. This is when you start to question why you decided to pick Maggie Lake as the first stop and not Maple Leaf Lake.
