The Spirit Lake hike is wonderful for inspiring and recharging your spirit by allowing you to connect with trees, birds, flowers and animals, as well as with the Haida who spent so much time around the lake. The trail begins in Skidegate, one of two Haida communities on Haida Gwaii and is part of an historical trail system the Haida used to travel to the community of Queen Charlotte and to collect cedar bark, medicinal plants and berries.
It is now a beautiful place to walk for locals and visitors alike. Enjoy!
For those who love the lushness of ferns, there are seven different kinds within this small ecosystem. Candlelabra cedar snags.
In the spring and fall swans and geese stop over here.
