Description

Starting on the Borchardt Rd parking lot (km 108.7), we will follow the Minhinnik ST to the Lillie Family parking area on Britain Lk Rd at the Cotrill Lake ST (110.8 km) we will loop around the Cotrill Lk ST spending time on the shores looking for the arrival of water fowl.  On the return trip to the cars, we will follow the Main Trail South, looking for grebes, loons and other shoreline birds that frequent Dyers Bay.  We will visit the Devil's Monument viewing platform, and check out the waterfall before heading back to the parking lot along Devil's Monument ST and the Minhinnik to Borchardt Rd. Throughout our hike, we will keep an eye out for the arrival of spring flowers and other harbingers of spring.  This route is quite rocky in places with stairs.  The Trail may be wet and muddy around Cotrill Lake. We will be taking stairs down to the viewing platform and the waterfall. Total distance is around 8 km.  This hike may take 3 hours to complete.  Pack snacks and drinks accordingly.
