The clockwise around the lake loop. Day's of Roses is possibly one of the best climbs in BC and City on the Edge provides a wicked steep and exposed line down to the lake. The addition of the lake loop climbing up to RSVP via Swamp Donkey extends the day.

Sad and still shocking to see, nearly entire trail has severe fire damage. Many holes from burnt out root structures along the sides of the trail and at some points on the trail. At least half a dozen widow makers along the trail that wouldn't take a granny gear gasp to knock over. Going to need professionals to get this fixed up. "Shade tree" at the halfway lookout burnt bad but still standing, likely dead though. Hopefully Daze is resilient from erosion with the loss of roots structure in the side hill areas. East side of RV lake looks even worse.
