Hike up Cerise Creek Summer Trail
The original plan with the Nanaimo Hiking Club was to go up the Joffre Lakes trail, but it was closed due to windfalls & construction, so we switched to Cerise Creek. We used the parking spot on highway 99 as we had multiple different cars. This meant crossing the small creek almost immediately.
