Arrowsmith CPR Regional Trail

The Canadian Pacific Railway built this historic trail in 1912 to service guests at their Cameron Lake resort. The views from the forested mountain trail remain spectacular today. The trail winds steadily uphill from Hwy 4 through private forest lands to the Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District's park, site of a defunct ski hill. It's a good four hour climb on rough but ready trail to the old ski hill and network of Mount Cokely trails with a great lookout about half way. The upper half of the Arrowsmith CPR Trail is a large loop; the entire trail length is about 10 km including the loop and total elevation gain about 1000 metres. It's high country so be prepared: pack water, warm clothing and wear sturdy boots.
