Hollyburn fir loop
One of the biggest and oldest Douglas fir tress in BC, if not the world. Estimated to be well over 1,100 years old! The trailhead is at the corner of Millstream Road and Chartwell Drive in the upper section of British Properties. Hiking boots or sturdy shoes are highly recommended for these rocky, often muddy and moderately steep trails; bring plenty of water and pack a lunch as well. Head west on the Millstream Trail, turning right at the junction with the gravel fire access road. Soon a signpost on the right side of the road marks the "Shields Incline Railway," but stay left and save that for the return trip. You'll soon come across remnants of an old army surplus truck (including the engine block) used by logging crews until it expired around 1950. Keep pushing uphill until you reach the Skyline Trail, which is indicated by power lines overhead. Turn left at the Skyline Trail, then turn right at the junction for the Upper Brewis Trail. Follow the orange reflective tree markers uphill for 20 minutes until you catch your first glimpse of the giant Hollyburn Fir.
