This is overview map of Nanaimo/Lantville Area's Sywash Ridge's Trail system. I have left all the waypoint markers as to not clutter up the overall view of the map. i'll be redone the 3d version  to match the color coding stated above.

This starts at N49 14.495 w124 07.353. you hike down the dirt road 300m to N49 14.599 W124 07.542 and go in the the woods and follow trail to logging road turn left and follow it,to a clear-cut. there are a few side road on your left, ignore them. at the clear-cut you hike straight until the road turn and go right and follow to N49 13.977 w124 07.966 or to the second trail starts at N49 12.075 w124 08.236. At either location you find ribbons in the trees.

Due to trees down at the far end loop of the trail, go slow and look for marker for the trails is kind of hidden from the downed trees.

I hope this information helps you and keeps you safe while you wandered the trails of Sywash Ridge area of Nanaimo/Lantzville
