Description:

I'm thinking of organizing a long-ish but easy (by scrambles standard; difficult by Vancouvertrails.com standard) day hike to Mt Price or Panorama Ridge on Sun Jun 23. Haven't been to either but mostly on trails so routefinding shouldn't be an issue. Will be an early start as total return trip will probably be 12-14 hours, depending on fitness/experience level of participants. Hopefully the weather cooperates!

UPDATE: We are heading to Mt. Price! If anyone is interested to join us, please find your own means of transportation to Garibaldi Rubble Creek parking lot. We aim to cross Lion's Gate bridge by 5.30am.

Panorama Ridge provides a spectacular viewpoint of Garibaldi Lake and the surrounding glaciated peaks. This is a deservedly popular outing, so expect plenty of other people. The ascent, mostly along trails, is straightforward and easy.
