Inspired by Len's recent self-propelled trip to the Golden Ears (http://www.ubc-voc.com/phorum5/read.php?3,76055), but lacking a bike, I want to do the Golden Ears trail either as a daytrip (with an early start), or as a mellow overnighter filled with lots of berry picking and lake dipping along the way.
My current plan is to carry light overnight gear and either finish the trail on the same day or not, depending on how I feel about it at the time. This can change depending on participants and their preference.
There is a bit of scrambling and some snow walking and you might appreciate having an ice axe on the snow slopes just below the summit.
