Description:

Let's head up Mt. Frosty in Manning Park! We will hike through a larch forest that has some trees that are over 2,000 years old. Hopefully the trees will still have their golden needles on them.

The hike will be 22 or 27.5 km over two days, with 1100 - 1200 m of total elevation gain. 

On Saturday evening, we will share desserts, ideally home baked goodies.
