April 5th, 2013 – Lynn Canyon, North Vancouver

Hey Trail Trekkers – Hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend. We’re looking forward to seeing you at the Lynn Canyon Cafe at 9:15am on Friday. The hike will leave at 9:30am and we’ll be poking around the Lynn Canyon trails. This is considered a Moderate+ hike as there are steep ascending and descending sections, stairways and rooty paths – come prepared.

Your leaders will be Bernie, Femina and Tracy.

If you have any requests for hikes in the coming months please let your leaders know on Friday as we’ll be preparing the May-July schedule on Friday afternoon.

See you Friday on trail

March 22nd, 2013 – Riverside Drive, North Vancouver

Hey Trail Trekkers – Please be advised that our original schedule indicated that we would be snowshoeing Dog Mountain on Seymour. Due to weather conditions and Spring Break we’ve decided to meet at the end of Riverside Drive and follow the trails to Twin Falls and beyond.

Also, please be advised that your Leaders will be meeting in the next couple of weeks to put together the May-July 2013 hike schedule. Please provide input – suggestions and hike locales would be greatly appreciated. You can either post to Routescout or speak with us at the hikes.

March 15th, 2013 – Old Lillooet Trail, North Vancouver

Hey Trail Trekkers: Well, it’s going to be real hard to surpass the snowshoe we had yesterday but let’s hope the sun shines for us this week. Mid-March – where has the year gone????

We’re meeting at 9:15am at the Richard Juryn parking lot in InterRiver Park off Lillooet Road by the washrooms. Our hike will take us out past Capilano U and the cemetary along trails up to the Seymour Demonstration Forest.

Fearless leaders will be Bernie, Femina and Tracy.

Remember, to meet at 9:15 so Femina can deal with #s and $s and we’ll be off at 9:30am.

Looking forward to seeing everyone out.
