The Witchcraft Lake Regional Trail provides authorized public access to Mount Benson Regional Park, which is not served by any public road. The Regional Park is surrounded by private forest lands and a Crown woodlot managed by Vancouver Island University. The Regional Trail begins at the Mount Benson Parking Lot on Benson View Road and heads up through the VIU woodlot to the Regional Park. There are many other trails within the woodlot but only the WLRT is associated with MBRP and managed by the RDN. As within MBRP, appropriate footwear is a must when hiking up this steep trail.
