Brohm Lake Interpretive Forest Trail

Length: 8.5 km (loop), Elevation Gain: 400 m

Cheakamus Canyon Trail

Length: 11 km, Elevation Gain: 330 m

I put those two trails in together because they are relatively short, not much elevation gain, and close to each other (20 minutes drive between the two trail heads).

Brohm Lake Interpretive Forest Trail is an easy trail. It is in Squamish, British Columbia. There is nothing technical about the trail. There are a few side trails on this loop therefore if you want to stick to the trail you might want to get an offline trail map. The ascend to Tantalus Viewpoint has a few stairs and rocky, but again nothing too hard and they are short.

You will enjoy this trail the most during the fall season. The fall season brings out all the fall colors. One of the best trails to enjoy fall colors around Greater Vancouver. If the weather is cold enough, you will see the distant mountains covered with snow.

Cheakamus Canyon Trail

This is a short and little elevation gain trail. The road leading to the trail head has a lot of pot holes, big and small. If you are brave and your car is capable (high clearance), you can drive pass the official trail head and save yourself a few hundred meters of hiking. But the few km at the start of this trail is relatively flat anyway. There are two highlights on this trail. One is starvation lake, at about 2km of the trail. Another one is Cheakamus Canyon Viewpoint, at about 4 km. Other than that, the trail is a little bland. This is the reason I suggest you do Cheakamus Canyon Trail and Brohm Lake Interpretive Forest Trail in one day.
