Due to expected poor weather conditions at the top of the mountain, we have decided to change the location of this Friday’s hike.

We will now be meeting behind Parkgate Shopping Centre and hiking (our favourite) The Old Buck Trail.

Please pass this info along to your fellow Trekkers…hope to see you Friday!


Hollyburn Mountain, Oct. 23

This Friday we’ll be meeting at the Cypress nordic area, then hiking the trails to Hollyburn Mountain. This hike has some steep rocky sections, bring your poles. It might be a wet week, so be prepared for muddy conditions!

To get to the nordic area, drive up Cypress mountain and turn right before you get to the very top. You’ll be heading toward the Hollyburn cross country area, we’ll meet in the parking lot there.

Meet your leaders Tracy and Bernie at 9:15, and be ready to hit the trails at 9:30.
See you then!

Have you lost a hiking pole?

….if you have, it’s been found! It’s a blue and silver collapsible pole with a black handle. If you’d like to get it back, call Barb at 604.929.1175.


16th October 2015 – Brothers Creek – West Vancouver

Hey Trail Trekkers – our illustrious leader, Bernie, will be back to lead us through the forests and creeks of the Brothers Creek area. We’re meeting at Eyremont and Millstream at 9:15am – hike leaves at 9:30 sharp.

This is an intermediate + hike with very steep, rooty terrain, mud and creek crossings. Hikers, gators and poles are strongly recommended.

See you on the trail. Happy Thanksgiving Tracy

October 9th, 2015 – Howe Sound Crest Trail – Cypress Mountain

Hi Trail Trekkers: We’re meeting at 9:15 at the Chalet on Cypress Mountain in the Alpine area. The hike is Howe Sound Crest Trail and surrounding trails. The hike is graded as intermediate with steep uphill sections and some technical areas. Please wear appropriate footwear and bring poles if required.

NOTE: Tracy will be the only leader for the hike. Elena has agreed to sweep but it is imperative that we all stay together as a group. This means that everyone must be responsible and keep the person a head of them in sight at all times. In the words of one of my favorite hike leaders, Tracy doesn’t’ want to be a sheepdog and have to run between the front and back to ensure the safety of everyone on the hike. Just something to keep in mind …

See you Friday at the Chalet. Cheers
