Witchcraft Lake Regional Trail

The 2 km long Witchcraft Lake Regional Trail was developed to provide authorized public access to Mount Benson Regional Park, which is not served by any public road. MBRP is surrounded by private forest lands and the Crown woodlot managed by Vancouver Island University. The WLRT begins at the City of Nanaimo’s Witchcraft Lake on Benson View Road, crosses the lake, runs along a short stretch of undeveloped provincial road, and then climbs on a steep rough trail through more City land and then the Crown woodlot up to the boundary with MBRP. There are other trails within the woodlot but only the WLRT is associated with MBRP and managed by the RDN. As with MBRP, appropriate footwear is a must on this steep trail. For those not interested in climbing, the immediate area around Witchcraft Lake offers a most pleasant opportunity to enjoy nature and stretch the legs.
