West Bragg Creek Trails – Snowshoeing

About three weeks ago on a Tuesday we went here to do some snowshoeing.  We had been told Snowshoe Hare Trail was a decent trail and set aside specifically for snowshoes not cross country skis.  We had only been out a couple of times on snowshoes and loved and the temperature being perfect for us  – a couple of degrees below freezing.  We are not hard core – going outside at -20.

You get to this park by going through Bragg Creek, over the bridge and making a left on West Bragg Creek Road.  You will eventually come to a parking lot on the right when you cannot continue on the road anymore. 

We hiked some of the trails here in warmer weather – there are lots.

There was decent snow on the trail.  We went in about 1-2 km and then went off trail.  Something we would not have wanted to do with just boots or skis.  After a while we did wander back to another trail and eventually found our way to the parking lot before dark.  We were out for about three hours which was perfect for not having done this all that much. A few newly worked muscles.

Here are a few of the pics.  One or two with my camera but most taken with my iPad.
