This long and difficult hike will take us on a counterclockwise circumnavigation of Sheldon Lake over rugged terrain. From the Devil’s Lake trailhead, we’ll head off to Sheldon Lake via the blue side trail. Highlights include the renowned birch tree scramble, a classic beaver dam crossing, and the scenic lookout over Sheldon Lake. The trail carries on around Sheldon to Petticoat Junction where we’ll turn south onto the white/main trail leading to Scrabble Mountain (2nd highest point in QE II Wildlands Provincial Park) for a lunch break by the Aldey LeCraw monument. From there we will carry on to Black Creek Junction to connect with Queen’s Corridor that will take us back to Devil’s Lake trailhead.
