    Really nice hike! Took us approx. 1 hour and 45 mins going at a fast pace, running at times to get away from the horse/deer flies! Not too muddy despite some soggy areas (you could navigate around them) given all the rain we had recently. Our favourite trail so far - we were at Petroglyphs park and The Gut, but this one was more challenging and covered some great terrain.

    Great, moderate hike! The trails are really well kept and easy to follow. Went to do the middle length loop, but ended up only doing Clutes lake loop (around 3 km). Only the administrative parking lot was open, so had to walk 3.4km there and back to get to the start of the hike, adding over an hour to our hike. Took about 2 hours total. Ran into 3 other small groups hiking, but had no problem social distancing from each other. :) Happy the parks are open !
