St. Georges Trail Friday Feb. 24

To hike the St. Georges trail this week, we are going to change back to the original starting point of Carisbrooke Park. Meet in the Upper Parking lot of the Park (the one on Carisbrooke road) ready to hike by 9:20. We will leave that spot at 9:30.

Trail conditions look good, a few trees down across the trail, but nothing we trekkers can’t handle!

Directions to meeting spot: Go straight up Lonsedale Avenue, turn right on Carisbrooke Road, park in lot on right. Overflow parking available in the lower lot on Osbourne, but the hike will be leaving the upper lot at 9:30, so allow enough time to cross the park.

***Heads up for next weeks snowshoe*** We will be snowshoing up Cypress to the Bowen Lookout. Meet at the Salmon House Parking Lot at 9am sharp for a carpool, or in the main Chalet/ ski area parking lot up Cypress for 9:20. Snowshoe will leave at 9:30 from the top lot.

Forecast is for rain or snow on Friday morning- be prepared 🙂

Not much to report for the hike up Quarry Rock on Friday, steady up and down, we just may be battling the weather, but that hasn’t stopped us yet!

Route for Feb 3

Hello all,

Meeting place is Cleavland Dam for this weeks hike. Follow signs and directions to Grouse Mountain and it is on your left, meet in the parking lot.

Route: Heading down the ‘Shinglebolt trail’ to the Coho Loop. We will do the Coho loop and then the Chinook Loop to finish it off. Trail conditions are decent, a little bit muddy and mucky, some rooty/ exposed stone technical areas, but MOSTLY groomed trail 🙂

Weather looks like it will hold for us too!

We may be a bit shy of 2 hours this week, but should be pretty close!!

See you tomorrow
