Description:

This is a beginner friendly trip that is created for new VOC members and those new to overnight hiking trips. Come if you are enthusiastic about getting into the outdoors, learning about camping, and interested in meeting new people! 

Elfin Lakes is a beautiful area accessed from Squamish. We will be accessing it from the southern side of the Garibaldi Provincial park, and will be using the parking lot near Red Heather. See here and here for further details and pictures about the region.

At the pretrip meeting, we will discuss things like, what to bring for an overnighter, sort out drivers, car pickups, sharing tents, food groups, and other important items!!! Please come!!!!

Also feel free to look at the gear list on general things recommended by the club to bring on an overnighter.

Unfortunately due to the level of interest, and my comfort level, I will be maxing this trip at 20-25 people. Do not let this trip posting deter you! Please still come to the pretrip meeting, as many people do not show up, and bail last minute. While the pretrip meeting IS very important, please email me if you are 'going' but are unable to make the pretrip meeting.
