2nd May 2014 – Cleveland Dam and Beyond

Hey Trail Trekkers – Where is the time going – can you believe we’re into May already?

Femina, Tracy and possibly Bernie will be meeting with you in the parking lot at Cleveland Dam. We have many choices and depending on the group, weather etc we may take off and head onto the Baden Powell and up into the Brothers Creek area. If the group isn’t game for the Moderate+ hike we can meander around the Shadbolt Trail and take in the beautiful old growth in the trails around the dam and fisheries. It will be a surprise!!!

See everyone at 9:15 in the parking lot at Cleveland Dam – remember to wear appropriate gear including hiking boots and bring supplies (water) – the days are heating up and hydration is necessary.

This is a moderate + hike with steep sections – our fearless leader Bernie will take us through the trails.

See you at 9:15 at End of the Line Cafe.

Dog Mountain April 2014Hey Trail Trekkers – sorry you missed todays’ snowshoe on Dog Mountain. Even though it was overcast we had light snow and soft, fresh powder. We had a small group but so glad we visited winter – it was a great day to be on the mountain.

Last chance, the final snowshoe of the Friday Trail Trekkers schedule will be April 11th. We’re meeting at the Chalet in the Cypress Alpine and heading up Black Mountain to Cabin Lake and beyond. Bring your poles and be prepared for a wonderful uphill hike and hopefully amazing vistas at the top.

This is rated as difficult – very steep but worth the climb. Your leaders will be Femina, Tracy and Bernie. See you at the Chalet at 9:15 and the snowshoe will commence at 9:30.
