Friday Feb. 12. Snowshoe cancelled, hike at Lighthouse Park instead!

Due to continuing mild temperatures and rainfall on the mountain, we have decided to cancel our planned snowshoe outing and go hiking at sea level instead!

We’ll be hiking the trails of Lighthouse Park in West Van. As usual, please be there by 9:15 and ready to hike at 9:30. This is an easy to moderate hike with some rooty sections and hopefully some nice ocean views!

See you Friday!

Brothers’ Creek, Feb. 5

This Friday’s hike is Brothers’ Creek. We’re meeting at the trailhead at the top of Chartwell where it meets Eyremount and Millstream in the British Properties.

This is considered a moderate + hike with steep sections and rooty, rocky areas with possible tricky footing and creek crossings. Please wear appropriate footwear and bring your poles. Due to possible icy conditions, micro spikes or yak tracks may be a good idea.

We’ll meet you at 9:15 to take a count before leaving at 9:30. The hike will be approximately 2 hours but may run a little longer depending on conditions.

Snowshoe cancelled!! Urban walk from Parkgate instead.

It looks like the weather and snow conditions have not improved, so let’s switch to plan B!

This Friday Jan.29, Tracy will lead a hike/urban walk through Cates Park and the trails of Deep Cove.
Let’s meet out back of Parkgate Rec. Centre (off of Banff Ct.) at 9:15.

We’ll be ready to hike at 9:30.
This is an easy/moderate hike.
See you there!

Dog Mtn. Snow shoe….watch for updates!!

This Friday Jan.29 we are planning to snowshoe Dog Mountain……however, the conditions may not be favourable if mild rainy weather persists all week. We have an urban walk/hike in place as a back up.

We’ll keep an eye on things and make a decision by Wednesday P.M. which we’ll post here on routescout!

Thanks and stay tuned!

Happy New Year!

This Friday January 8 we’ll be meeting at the Delbrook Rec. Centre, then we’ll head out on a hike/urban walk through the Delbrook area and lower Mosquito Creek trails.

This is a good opportunity to renew your Flex 10 pass or Trail Trekker punch cards, while at Delbrook. Your leaders will also have copies of the Rec. Centre waiver for you to sign.
FYI,you can renew your Flex 10 passes at any NV Rec. facility to avoid a line up. The punch cards are only available at Delbrook.

See you Friday!
