Brohm Lake Interpretive Forest

Home of one of the Sea to Sky's warmest and most beautiful lakes.

Located 7 km north of Squamish on the west side of Highway 99, Brohm Lake Interpretive Forest is home to one of the warmest and most beautiful lakes in the Sea to Sky Corridor. While there are over 10km of trails in the Interpretive Forest, the main trail is the loop around Brohm Lake itself.

The Brohm Lake Trail is an intermediate hike, with some steeper, more challenging sections along some of the rock bluffs around the lake. Nothing is unmanageable, even for larger dogs and this is a dog friendly area. The trail is marked at the start and while it doesn’t have the same level of marking as the provincial park trails, it is fairly obvious nonetheless and basically just winds its way around the circumference of the lake.

There are many other trails, some of a much higher technical difficulty, dotted around Brohm Lake and both the signs at the parking lot and along the Brohm Lake Trail have maps of the every trail in the area.

The trail starts right in the parking lot and can be done in a north or south direction. North will bring you immediately into the woods, and onto the craggy shores of the lake. South will take you out along the highway and over a wooden bridge. Both finish back in the parking lot.

Getting There:

Brohm Lake is located 7km north of Squamish on the west side of highway 99. Follow the signs off the highway and you will turn straight into the parking lot. The trails begin right at the signpost.


Depending on whether you stop for a swim at the many little outcroppings of rock on the shores of the lake, the actual walking time around the lake is between 1 and 2 hours.
