Snowshoe this Friday

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

We’ll meet at the Cypress alpine area outside the lodge (follow the Cypress Mtn. road to the top parking lot).

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.

We’ll return to the lodge by approximately 11:30.


Due to icy conditions in the Whyte Lake area, we are changing the location of Friday’s (Jan.13) hike to the Richard Juryn/Old Lillooet Loop. In the interest of safety, we have decided on a lower elevation hike.

Meet at the trail head, near the washrooms at Inter-River Park.

To get there, take Lillooet Road up the hill past the exit for Capilano University, then turn left at the Inter River Park sign (before the stables). Turn left again for the lower parking lot.

There’s plenty of parking in the lower parking lot, look for your leaders there.
Let’s meet at 9:15 and be ready to hike at 9:30.
This is a moderate hike with some rooty sections. Some places may be snow covered or icy, yaktraks or micro spikes might be advisable.

We should be back at the parking lot by 11:30. Please spread the word about this change of plan!

See you Friday!

This Friday, the Capilano Canyon, then the Christmas party!!

This Friday, Dec.16, we’ll meet for our last hike of the year! Please be at the eastern end of Keith Road in West Van. (under the Hwy.1 overpass) by 9:15, then we’ll head up the Capilano Pacific Trail through Capilano Canyon towards Cleveland Dam.

This hike may be slightly abbreviated as we’ll be anxious to get to the Christmas get together following the hike.

The hike starts at 9:30, it’s an easy to moderate hike.

This Friday, meet at the End Of The Line Store

This Friday Dec.9 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.

The road to Lynn Headwaters Park is now closed to vehicular traffic,making less available parking in the area. As well,the District has imposed a two hour parking zone on Dempsey Road. There should be plenty of parking available in Kilmer park in the 1600 block of Dempsey.

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