The existing trails within the WA and the adjacent lands are generally in poor condition. This is largely due to heavy use and no maintenance over a long period of time. Degradation, poor drainage, questionable routing and lack of any trail development plans have all contributed to the current state. However, the trails continue to be used and enjoyed year-round by those with the ability to navigate what can best be described as challenging conditions.
NOTE: Provincially-designated Wilderness Areas typically do not have any managed trail systems. Most trails on all sides of the BMBCL are the result of private citizen initiatives or have been in place for many years before the WA was created.
