Campbell River’s Canyon View Trail (accessed via parking areas at the old BC Hydro powerhouse and at the logging bridge at Woodburn Road) is a moderate 6 km loop that is excellent for wildflowers in the early spring. The rich soil of the Campbell River flood plain is perfect for both white and pink fawn lilies (Erythronium sp.) and the display can be spectacular. I try to do the loop at least once every spring and this year managed two trips (so far), one with the kids and a second with the Comox Valley Camera Club. The challenge is in trying to photograph the flowers from a different perspective to show a different aspect of the habitat or the plant.
The wildflower bloom is spectacular on the Canyon View Trail right now – make sure to get out and enjoy it!
