We try to hike the Barnes Lake Trails twice a year, and in 2016 we returned in November to do the routes again. We started at the Gardiner Road trailhead and hiked up Trail #1, then continued to take left turns around the outside loop of the area, returning back into the grasslands on the west side, finishing at Barnharvale Road where we had parked.

We will return to hike the Barnes Lake Trails in the winter of 2017.
