Archive:Skyler's Golden Ears Day Hike

From VOC Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


The Golden Ears are some beautiful peaks overlooking the lower mainland. I admire them as I ride down 8th avenue on clear days. It takes about an hour to drive to the trailhead. This hike is a long day hike with a fair bit of elevation gain, but with nothing more than reasonable fitness, we should be able to do the easy scramble up the peak(s). So, this is beginner and family friendly. Expect to start early in the morning though. Saturday October 16th is the day. We can all be back for the MEC Gear Swap on Sunday.

We need people to drive. So, the number of people that can come is dependent on the amount of rides we can provide collectively for each other.

Trip organizer is Skyler Des Roches (find me on the member list if you need to contact me).

Trip Meeting

The pre-trip meeting will be on Thursday, October 14 at 5 pm in the VOC clubroom in the basement of the SUB. The meeting will serve to sort out rides, and make sure everyone is happy. If the weather looks horrendous, we can also choose a lower-elevation trail at this point.

Gear Required

It's important that you have a decent pair of hiking boots/shoes. Also bring a gigantic lunch (like 3 meals), at least 2L of water, and rain-gear/layers.
