November 2nd, 2012 – Fishermans’ Trail

Hey Trail Trekkers:

The November 2nd hike will be Fishermans’ Trail. Please meet at 9:15 at the End of the Life Cafe at the top of Lynn Valley Road. This gives the leaders a chance to collect monies owing and get a proper headcount before leaving at 9:30am.

We will follow Fishermans’ Trail, Homestead Trail to Twin Bridges and based on time and/or weather either continue towards Hyannis or head back to the cafe for coffee.

This is a moderate hike but does have steep ups and downs – please wear appropriate gear and bring poles if necessary.

Bernie will be absent but Femina and Tracy will be available to lead.

Hey Fellow Trail Trekkers:

Todays’ hike will start in the gravol parking lot at InterRiver Park and wind it’s way up past Capilano University, the cemetary and into the Seymour Demonstration Forest area.
