| Sawdust Trail is located
in Strathcona Provincial Park in Central Vancouver Island. Named informally by
hikers because it is built up with wood chips, this 2.9-km trail from Paradise
Meadows winds gently through rolling meadows to bring walkers of almost any ability
to Lake Helen Mackenzie. |
Follow the lakeshore trail eastwards (i.e.
to the left) that leads to the west side of Battleship Lake where you join the
main trail back to Paradise Meadows.
This pleasant loop requires about
3 hours, excluding rest stops.
From Courtenay take the public road to
Mount Washington's nordic ski parking lot, and the start of trail, a distance
of approximately 26 km.
