Mount Arrowsmith is hard to miss if you’re driving around on Vancouver Island. I can’t count the number of times I’ve driven north of Nanaimo, looked left up to his stony peaks and wondered when I was going to hike up there.I finally put time and opportunity together and made the trip September 1, 2014.We couldn’t see a thing at the top because of the fog but it was still a great hike. I will be back.Get directions and other links on the Mount Arrowsmith Trail page.Here are some photos from the day.
