Description:

Looking for others interested to hike up Tricouni Peak either this Sat or Sun (Saturday seems to be the preferred). Never been there, so not sure if my vehicle can make it all the way to trailhead. Be 99% prepared to add a 1.1 km walk and an additional ~200m elevation gain on foot.

Note: I'm not a quick hiker. Would be a leisurely pace for most people, so the trip probably won't be suitable for people who like speed and hate to wait.

Route description (from Scrambles by Matt Gunn)

Summit: 2122 m
Difficulty: Short moderate corner, minimal exposure
Ascent Time: 3-4 hrs (~5 hrs including hike up logging road)
Elevation Gain: 922 m (1122 m including hike up logging road)

The route up to Tricouni Peak is a short, fantastic scramble above beautiful alpine lakes and meadows. Stellar scenery and an enjoyable summit ridge make this ascent a worthwhile outing. The jagged summit makes a reasonably casual day trip from Vancouver.... Despite its jagged appearance, there is limited exposure on the route, which ascends the southwest slopes of the mountain. Because a significant section of the access is on steep, loose road, this route is best approached with 4WD vehicles. Some powerful 2WD vehicles will be able to make it most of the way to the trailhead.
