From the parking lot, proceed up the hill and turn left on to the trail. At writing time, the first part of the trail is fairly sketchy but easy to follow as it skirts the golf course. Cross the road (B) and the trail continues to the right above the course. It is possible to park at (B) and so avoid the first part of this trail. As you walk, you can watch the golfers and see the golf course reservoir and the occasional sea view. At the far end of the course, the trail goes into another wooded area where the trail is named Maggie’s Walk with a bench dedicated to Maggie Cumming, a Bowen Islander who loved our trails and whose legacy fund is dedicated to the maintenance of the trails. Pass the old trestle bridge alongside the creek and emerge from the woods on to Arbutus Lane where you turn left back to the clubhouse.
Turn right at (A) and access a little beach at Alder Cove. Turn right at (C) and access Seymour Bay facing Vancouver. New trails will be opened near the golf course as the Cowan Point development proceeds.
