The plan is to hike the short (max 2 hours) distance to Semaphore Lakes on Saturday morning, then scramble up Face and Locomotive Mountains on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning depending on weather. Head back home on Sunday night, stopping for Beers and Burgers in Squamish.

This is a beginner friendly trip, a decent level of fitness would make it more enjoyable if you want to make it up both mountains, but no experience is needed. Both scrambles have a little bit of exposure and route-finding involved.
