Little Sliammon Lake (SCT)
John, Craig, Clint and I hiked the reroute laid out and marked a few years ago adjacent and through the Little Sliammon Lake cutblock. We reflagged the route, which will run along in the 30 m riparian zone left along the south shore of the lake (see pictures), then follow the ephemeral creek south, upstream and parallel to the logging spur. The route is fairly well flagged now below the road, but it is going to require work. Some machine work will be done on the trail in the section where it crosses a corner of the cutblock.
We anticipate the trail re-establishment will be complete before the end of April for the Annual Marathon Shuffle from Malaspina Road to the Shinglemill, for a total of 29 scenic km on the Sunshine Coast Trail. Perhaps a new picnic table and platform will be built at the edge of the lake at the old Shangri-la site.
