Description:
The Harrison hut is the VOC's most elusive hut, mainly due to the large quantity of landslide activity in the Meager Creek Valley which tends to destroy the roads. Mounts Meager, Capricorn and Devastator (all on the North side of this valley) make up what is reported to be the most geologically unstable region in Canada. This trip will be one of many, to restore access to the Meager Creek Valley - including the VOC's Harrison Hut and the Meager Creek Hotsprings - after the second largest landslide in Canadian History took out 2 bridges and kilometers of road along the traditional access route.

We will be constructing a 6km route which connects logging roads on the geologically stable South side of Meager Creek and the Lillooet River, thus avoiding all major river crossings. After 3 reconnaissance trips we have found the optimal route and are ready to change bushwack to brushed-out. We will need a lot of labour to get this done - a great and rewarding opportunity to give something back to the outdoor community.
