Burstall Meadows Snowshoeing log
A track of all my snowshoeing trips to Burstall Meadows

This is one of a few trips I repeat many times, so all trips are logged here, as many do not need their own full page.

Distance - 8km return
Elevation Gain - 200m

The Burstall Meadows snowshoe route is the first section of the Burstall Pass trail - up until the gravel flats area.
It's possible to just go out and back on the main hiking trail, which has room for a skiing lane and a snowshoeing lane.
Optionally, a detour down to the lake can change it up. On a windier day, the lakes can be unpleasant, but if it's calm it's quite nice.

A work trip with lots of new snow. We hiked along the lakes and broke trail in pretty deep snow most of the way.

Start of the trail near Mud Lake.

Work trip. We got a little bit of everything with some clouds, some snow, and just a wee bit of sun poking out.
