Description:

This will be an awesome weekend trip up to Rohr lake with a scramble to the peak of Mt Rohr. This hike gets great reviews and sounds like an easy scramble for people looking to get more comfortable with overnight trips, or just to enjoy a relaxing weekend in the mountains.

It's rated a moderate day-hike from Whistler or Pemberton, but coming all the way from Vancouver (~3 hour drive) I'd like to hike in and camp at the lake on Saturday night. 

People coming on this trip should be comfortable with carrying their own camping gear, food and water, and knowledge of how to use topographic maps and compasses would be a bonus. 

-- 

Mt Rohr sounds like a beautiful, moderate scramble with pretty low traffic considering the location. The major issue with this hike seems to be the mud, but since this has been an exceptionally dry year, hopefully that won't be much of a problem! Gaiters and hiking poles would still be a good idea just in case. 

I'd like to make this trip beginner friendly, but would prefer to bring those who are comfortable with some mild route-finding and have knowledge of topo maps.

The date of this trip may depend on wildfire activity near Pemberton in late August, but most interest seems to be for this weekend.

Any questions, please post on the Message Board thead!

P.S.: This hiking area is fishing and dog-friendly, so feel free to bring your rods and your pups! :)
