Norvan Falls

This Friday, July 31 we’ll be hiking to Norvan Falls in Lynn Headwaters. This is an intermediate hike that should take 4 hours for the round trip. It’s the last hike before our August break.

Elena will be on hand to lead a 2 hour hike, for those who may prefer that option.

Please make sure you bring plenty of drinking water, drought conditions have left the creeks and streams very dry.

See you Friday!

We’ll meet in the lower parking lot at 9:15 and be ready to go at 9:30. This is a moderate hike with some rooty sections. Rain is expected, so some sections may be muddy.

Change of plan for this Friday!

We have decided to change the location of next week’s (July 17) hike. We’ll now be meeting at the top of Cypress mountain in the alpine area, near the chalet. We’ll then hike to Cabin Lake/Eagle Bluffs.

Come prepared to hike uphill on a fairly steep section, returning on a steep downhill trail.

We’ll meet at 9:15, then hit the trail at 9:30 after a head count.

See you then!

June 26 Fishermen’s Trail

This Friday we’re meeting at the End Of The Line store, at the corner of Lynn Valley and Dempsey roads. We’ll be heading down the Fishermen’s/Homestead loop to the site of the old Twin Bridges.
This is a moderate hike with some steep sections, up and downhill.

I have been asked to pass along a safety concern: trekkers are asked to refrain from cell phone use while on the trail. A few were noticed texting while navigating the trails. Let’s try to concentrate on our footing while on the trails and not be distracted.

Please be at the End Of The Line by 9:15, we’ll take a head count,do some punching, then hit the trail at 9:30.

Looking forward to a safe,sunny hike!

This hike is moderate, it’s straight uphill to the power lines and continues uphill once into the trails.
Please ensure you’re wearing appropriate hiking footwear and bring poles if required.
