Doumont Trails

The Doumont area is actually a large collection of trails that begin at the end of Doumont Road. From here you can hook into other trails and logging roads that end up on Mount Benson to the south or Lantzville foothills to the north. They can be a bit confusing so I recommend riding or running with someone who knows the trails well for the first time or take a map with you. Phil makes an amazing Doumont map and keeps it updated. You can get one of those here http://www.island.net/~pmcgarri/

Roberts Roost

Roberts Roost is a great little trail up to the east ridge of Mount Benson in Nanaimo. The trail meanders through Morrell Sanctuary, across the powerlines and hang a left at the first major intersection and across the logging road. Head up the hill from here up onto the ridge.
