This is great, fairly seldom traveled trail just up the Squamish Valley. It's starts at fairly low elevation, and doesn't reach any prominent peak, yet still provides beautiful views of the valley and of the falls themselves. The trail is attractive, and mostly forested along the way.

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.

  • Why is this Beginner Friendly? - I intend this trip for people who have some hiking experience and are comfortable in steep hiking/moderate scrambling situations. It might be steep/challenging. See the VOC definition of beginner friendly here.

My contact info is here.

Skills Required

A moderate level of hiking experience and a reasonable level of fitness would be good.

Trip Meeting

TBA. Likely, Wednesday, Oct 6th in the early evening. In the clubroom.

Gear Required

A good pair of hiking boots. We will have a lunch break at the top, and bringing food for sharing (potluck style) is highly encouraged.
