Description:

The trail to the Lizzie Cabin looks a lot better than it did a year ago. However, the section of the trail between the Lizzie Creek Cabin and Lizzie Lake and the 2km of logging road near Lizzie Lake still needs a bit of work. There are many fallen trees between the cabin and the lake. As well, Alder is still blocking the top of the logging road for about 2km. It would be wonderful if we could finish our work on the trail before winter comes.

The plan will be to try to leave Vancouver Friday evening. Someone owns a cabin on the In-SHUCK-ch FSR, about 10km before the Lizzie Crk FSR turnoff. She has offered us a place to stay plus hot shower/stove/fridge on the Friday night. On Saturday morning we will head up the trail to begin clearing the alder that starts about 2km below Lizzie Lake. Knowing how to use a chainsaw or brushsaw will be helpful on this trip but is not necessary.
