Men's Walking Group

Weather and location worked out for a great walk around Westwood Lake in the Nanaimo area.  Nice sunny day but under the umbrella of trees resulted in a very comfortable hike.  Below is my map and photos.   --   DeNNis.

It was an easy 6Km walk for 7 of us around Westwood Lake near Nanaimo.  Next stop was at the Fox & Hounds Pub in Ladysmith where we were joined by 2 others for lunch.  --  Brook.

Ignore the straight solid yellow line.  Follow the dotted yellow line counter-clockwise from the  "Parking Lot" around the lake.

Starting point - obviously.

Part of the beach area.

Near the parking area and washrooms.

Boardwalk right on the lake edge.

Shallow area complete with lily pads.

A very tall barren tree trunk.

About the half way point.

I need help with the name of these flowers.

A natural canopy of trees over the trail.

Looks a lot like "butterfly bush".

About 17 boardwalks around the lake - all numbered.

Lookout point on the east end of the lake.  The high point in
the trail.

Lots of great views.  The lake was obviously flooded at one time.
