July 29 Last Friday Trek until September! MEET AT CYPRESS TOP PARKING LOT AT 8:30

This Friday July 29, we’ll be doing an extended hike on the Howe Sound Crest trail to St. Mark’s summit! This is an intermediate hike with some substantial elevation gain. We are expecting it to be a 5 hour (approx.) round trip to St. Mark’s and back. There is a shorter alternative, along the way we’ll stop at the Bowen Lookout. Some of you may care to return to the parking lot from there, it’s about 2 hours return.

We’ll be meeting at Cypress in the top parking lot, near the downhill area at 8:30. PLEASE NOTE THIS EARLIER MEET TIME!

Please wear appropriate footwear,bring poles,water,lunch,bug spray etc. Some sections of this trail can be very muddy, let’s hope for dry weather this week!

We’re looking forward to a great hike to end our summer season.

Here’s a link to some info on this trail:
