Peppermint + Winter Spice | Cabin Lake
Notes: Peppermint + Winter Spice
Dream of snowshoeing and a warm flask of peppermint + winter spice tea with our Cabin Lake inspired winter candle.
Located on Black Mountain, Cypress Provincial Park in West Vancouver, British Columbia, Cabin lake is a beautifully scenic area popular all year round. In winter the area is an incredible snowshoe destination.
Crunching through the winter trails among the douglas fir and cedar trees it's hard to believe you can feel so remote and so close to Vancouver. The views from Black Mountain are worth the trip. The diversity of natural features, old-growth trees, and outdoor recreation opportunities both summer and winter, is due partly to the climate of coastal British Columbia. There may not be a cabin at the lake but we close our eyes and imagine escaping to the cabin for a hot drink after a long hike up.
Wildlife: A variety of large and small mammals inhabit the park. Coyotes and deer are often seen close to the access road. Black bears, squirrels, hares, and weasels may be encountered in the backcountry. Adding color and sound to the park are a variety of birds like ravens, gray jays, chickadees, warblers, woodpeckers, grouse, hawks, and owls.
Cypress Provincial Park is a mountainous area and popular hiking/snowshoeing region and it is important to note that safety is a must when visiting these remote areas on the north shore. If you are considering visiting the area please refer to the North Shore Rescue guide.
