Hicks Lake Loop Trail

6 kms. Take a short 12 km drive from Harrison Hot Springs along Rockwell Drive to Sasquatch Park and follow signs to Hicks Lake. Park your car in the “Day Use” parking lot” and bike to the main dock. On your left follow the old logging road. At the fork in the road (just past the outhouse) bear right onto a trail which winds up and down crossing 16 little wooden bridges.
