June 7th, 2013 – Grouse Mountain

Hi Everyone:

I hope you enjoyed the Whyte Lake hike this week. For next week, we’re meeting in the gravel parking lot at Grouse Mountain and taking the Baden Powell trail out to St. Georges and then back via the powerline.

All three leaders should be available for this hike. Please arrive at 9:15 so monies may be collected and heads counted. We’ll leave at exactly 9:30.

From all indications the sun should be shining – see you all on Friday.

May 31st, 2013 – Gleneagles Recreation Center – Whyte Lake

Hi Trail Trekkers – we’re back to the far reaches of West Vancouver. We’ll be meeting at Gleneagles Community Center on Marine Drive in West Vancouver. We’re going to cross the highway and head up the Black Mountain trailhead to Whyte Lake and then return via the Seaview Trail.

Femina is away but Bernie and Tracy will be there to lead the hike. Please arrive at 9:15 for recordkeeping duties and we’ll take off at 9:30.

Please note, with only two leaders it is difficult to keep track of individuals, especially, if you choose to hike ahead of the front leader. Please ensure that your leaders know that you are going ahead and stop at various points so that Bernie and I can eyeball you to ensure everyones’ safety.Many thanks Tracy

May 24, 2013 – AMENDED – Old Buck Trail, Parkgate North Vancouver

Hey Trail Trekkers – I got ahead of myself and sent out the hike for May 31st by accident. This Friday Bernie will be leading us up Old Buck Trail. Please meet at 9:15 behind the Parkgate Library and be ready to hike by 9:30.

Femina is away so there will be two leaders.

Sorry for the confusion – Whyte Lake will be May 31st.

Cheers Tracy

May 17th, 2013 – Sahalee Trail, West Vancouver

Hey Trail Trekkers – what better way to start a long May weekend than to meet at Caulfield Shopping Center and hike the Sahalee Trail. Femina and Tracy will be your leaders – Bernie is unavailable for this week.

Have a lovely week and we’ll see you at 9:15 in the Caulfield Shopping Center parking lot. Hike commences at 9:30 sharp.

May 10th, 2013 – Fishermans’ Trail, North Vancouver, B.C.

Hey Trail Trekkers – let’s hope for another beautiful Friday. We’ll meet at End of the Line Cafe at the top of Lynn Valley Road at 9:15am. Hike starts at 9:30 and we’ll head into the Seymour Demonstration Forest and meander our way down to Twin Bridges and back up towards coffee.

Bernie will be away but Boo the Coonhound has kindly volunteered to sweep the trail (on leash of course). She won’t allow anyone to get off trail and will be eternally grateful for the walk as Ill be leaving for Kelowna after the hike is complete.

Look forward to seeing everyone. Thanks
