Meet at End of the Line

This Friday we’re meeting at the End Of The Line store, at the corner of Lynn Valley and Dempsey roads. We’ll be heading through the Varley Trail to the Lynn Loop.

This is a moderate hike with some steep sections, up and downhill. There may still be a little snow at the higher spots,so come prepared.

The road to Lynn Headwaters Park is now closed to vehicular traffic,making less available parking in the area. As well,the District has imposed a two hour parking zone on Dempsey Road. There should be plenty of parking available in Kilmer park in the 1600 block of Dempsey.

Please be at the End Of The Line by 9:15, we’ll take a head count, then hit the trail at 9:30.

This hike may take just a little over two hours.

See you Friday!


Friday Trail Trekkers

Hi Everyone: Just wanted to thank you so much for the lovely card and bottle of wine from your December Christmas event. I’m going to miss the Friday group, but hopefully, I’ll be able to come out on occasion as a participant when life slows down to a dull roar. Many thanks Tracy

Snowshoe this Friday

This Friday we’ll be snowshoeing the Howe Sound Crest Trail to the Bowen Lookout.

We’ll meet at the Cypress alpine area outside the lodge (follow the Cypress Mtn. road to the top parking lot).

Please be there by 9:15 with your snowshoes and poles, we’ll be ready to go at 9:30.

This is a moderate to intermediate snowshoe with some steep trails.

We’ll return to the lodge by approximately 11:30.


Due to icy conditions in the Whyte Lake area, we are changing the location of Friday’s (Jan.13) hike to the Richard Juryn/Old Lillooet Loop. In the interest of safety, we have decided on a lower elevation hike.

Meet at the trail head, near the washrooms at Inter-River Park.

To get there, take Lillooet Road up the hill past the exit for Capilano University, then turn left at the Inter River Park sign (before the stables). Turn left again for the lower parking lot.

There’s plenty of parking in the lower parking lot, look for your leaders there.
Let’s meet at 9:15 and be ready to hike at 9:30.
This is a moderate hike with some rooty sections. Some places may be snow covered or icy, yaktraks or micro spikes might be advisable.

We should be back at the parking lot by 11:30. Please spread the word about this change of plan!

See you Friday!
