1st November 2013 – Whyte Lake via Black Mountain – Gleneagles Recreation Center

Hey Trail Trekkers

First of all, a very big thank you for all your support and kind words today.  The phone call I received on trail, although expected, still came as a shock and I appreciate all your patience.  I was hoping to be able to make it to the hospital after our hike but that wasn’t in the cards.

This week we’re meeting at Gleneagles Recreation Center in West Vancouver and will be heading up the Black Mountain Trailhead to Whyte Lake and then out at Nelson Creek and back along the Seaview Trail.  The uphill from Black Mountain to Whyte Lake is steep and poles are recommended.

Bernie and Femina will be leading you – I am taking a quick trip into Kelowna to celebrate some birthdays. 

Below are the directions for those individuals who need to check their routescout connections or for those individuals who need to sign up:

For those of you who are new to Trail Trekkers (or not…),  each week, our Rec Centre guides (Femina, Bernie and Tracy) post an announcement about the hike – including any changes to the hike, via “Routescout”.   The changes are not posted on this Trail Trekkers Listserve, nor on the NV Rec Centre http://www.  And, yes,  you have to sign up for Routescout separately from the TT Listserve.

Here are the directions on how to sign up for Routescout. 

  1. 1.      Log on to:   https://routescout.wordpress.com/
  2. 2.    At the bottom right hand corner of the blog web address, you will see a message that says “Follow”.  What “follow” means is that any time one of the guides posts something on the blog, you will receive an e-mail directly. 
  3. 3.    Click on “Follow” and add in your e-mail address.  Routescout will send you a confirmation email:
  4. 4.  Open the confirmation e-mail (see attachment 1)
  5. 5.    Click on “Confirm Follow”
  6. 6.    You should get a second confirmation (see attachment 2).

If you don’t get the second confirmation, something went wrong, so you’ll have to try again.


Please forward these directions to anyone who might need some help in accessing Routescout.

See you on November 8th and thanks again for today.
