What is Haida Gwaii known for? It's beautiful scenery! And where do you find such spectacular areas, worthy of filling up your memory card in your camera? Hiking!
My friend and I decided to go on a short hike together. We wanted one close to the city of Queen Charlotte, so I suggested we try the Gore Brook Trail. Located in the forests just outside of the town, we spent our morning trekking through a fairly easy hike, past mossy trees and through small creeks. Since the last time I had hiked the Gore Brook Trail, I found it to be well maintained and was impressed at how such a beautiful hike was so close!
I found some curled up black and yellow millipedes on the trail, always littered in the forest. They remind me so much of the hikes I went on as a child, and how they never got old no matter how many times I trekked through!
I will definitely be hiking more this summer, seeing how amazing our weather forecast is looking so far! For any information on hikes on Haida Gwaii, call us at the visitor centre (250-559-8316)! From hikes through beautiful old growth forests to beach walks, we have hikes for all!
