Meet at the End of the Line Store this Friday

This Friday we’ll be meeting at the End of the Line store at Lynn Valley and Dempsey Roads. We’ll hike through the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve and follow the Fishermen’s trail along the Seymour river to the former Twin Bridges site.

Please note that there is now less parking in the Lynn Valley/Dempsey Road area and the District has imposed a two hour parking zone on much of the area streets. There is plenty of parking available in Kilmer Park in the 1600 block of Dempsey Road.

This is a moderate hike with one long uphill section near the end.

As usual we’ll meet at 9:15 and be ready to go at 9:30.
See you Friday!

Thanks to Femina for this great pic of our snowshoe to the Bowen Lookout last Friday!

One last snowshoe!

This Friday April 21, we’ll be snowshoeing the Howe Sound Crest Trail to the Bowen Lookout.

We’ll meet at the Cypress alpine area outside the old lodge (follow the Cypress Mtn. road to the top parking lot, then turn left). We’ll meet outside of the building with the washrooms.

Please be there by 9:15 with your snowshoes and poles, we’ll be ready to go at 9:30.

This is a moderate to intermediate snowshoe with some steep trails. Should take approx. 2 hours.

No hike this week!

There will no Trail Trekkers hike this Friday due to the Good Friday holiday. We hope everyone enjoys the long weekend and we look forward to seeing you next week on the 21st!

Your leaders Bev, Femina and Bernie

Dog Mountain Snowshoe this Friday

Let’s meet in the Mt. Seymour top parking lot, at the very far end. Please be there by 9:15.

We’ll head out at 9:30.

This moderate/intermediate trek has steep sections and should take about two hours.

Let’s hope for a clear day and a nice view from the top!

Cypress meeting spot changed for March 24

We’ve decided to change the meeting spot for this Friday’s snowshoe. Apparently Cypress prefers us not to meet in front of the lodge,so we’ll now be meeting outside the building with the washrooms…take the road to the top, then turn left in the parking lot. It’s the building where we pick up our back country passes.

Remember it’s still Spring Break, so expect crowds….try to arrive a few minutes early!

See you then.
