Description:

Colliseum is too long for me, so instead I'm doing a day hike Saturday, to one of the local destinations.  None of these require a lot of expensive boring driving, and you will probably get home in time for an afternoon nap.

(1) Mt Strachan, N peak, via Cypress ski area.

(2) Mt Seymour, peak #3, via Seymour parking lot.

(3) Thunderbird Ridge & Eric the Red Trail, via Skyline Drive. (near Grouse).

Participants get to decide which destination we are going to, by email.  Destination #3 is Tran Slink accessible.  We have 2 or 3 car seats available and if you want to bring your own car, that's nice.  If you, for sure, want one of the seats in our car, email me, and I'll send you confirmation.  $5 per person will cover the cost of gas.

We will not have a pre-trip meeting; email me with questions.  You will need shoes of some sort (no flip-flops), a jacket, a lunch, a litre of water.   Trip will take 4-5-6 hours depending on which destination we choose.

This trip is Beginner Friendly, by which I mean that no special skills are required beyond the ability to walk, and we will cheerfully wait for you, though that will probably not be necessary.
