This local gem is one of my personal favourite Squamish hiking trails. The best part is that it is accessible year round, with fall and winter offering hikers the reward of solitude on the trail and easy parking. Brohm Lake is a popular summer destination for both visitors and locals alike, making parking a bit of an issue on sunny days. Fall offers hikers a rewarding private trail that has great tree coverage to keep you dry on the rainy days. For more recommended hiking trails – be sure to check out our Top 7 Summer Hikes Here.
The Brohm lake trail is well groomed and circles around the lake for approximately 10 – 12 kms through Lodgepole Pine, Western Red Cedar, Douglas Fir, Spruce and a mix of deciduous trees including Big Leaf Maple and Alder
The trail loop marked in this hiking spotlight can be done in either a north or south direction. I personally tend to head North, as you are immediately rewarded with stunning west coast forest with sneaking vistas of the lake. Both directions will loop you back to the parking lot.
If the skies are clear, I highly recommend adding the out the extra Tantalus viewpoint loop. This has a short steep section that rewards hikers with stunning views of Squamish and the Tantalus mountain views.
Brohm lake trail is well marked, but it can be easy to take the wrong turn, thus adding some extra time to your hike. We recommend downloading our New Squamish Adventure App – Available on IOS or Android to take this trail and more with you! Or picking up a physical copy of the Squamish Hiking trail map available at these locations.
The Brohm Lake trailhead is located just 7 km north of Squamish and is easily accessible from highway 99. Simply park at the Brome Lake parking lot, on the west side of the highway and begin your hike from there.
