Wayne and I like “wimpy” quad rides when we go out all on our own. We call a short (time and distance) ride a wimpy ride. Even though we’ve had our quads for several years, we aren’t that familiar with the trails around Powell River. We’ve been cautious about heading out on our own, but we have two tools that give us more confidence. One is a great map book written by Dave from the Powell River ATV Club. It’s called the ATV Trail Guide that is available at local ATV stores.
After our long, hot summer, there was no water left in the stream. We continued on Fred’s Trail to the Hammil Lake trail and followed it a short ways down to the lakeshore. The weather was cool and breezy, so we skipped a swim. Wayne tried a few casts while I had a pop and cookie break.
