Let's hike Hanes Valley!

It’s a 16km trail with 1320m of elevation gain and a solid hour of scrambling. We’ll faff the deets out over email but expect to meet up around 7:10am at Waterfront station. It’ll take us approximately 50 minutes to reach Lynn Headwaters by transit and about 9.5 hours to complete the Hanes Valley Trail.

Pending on how the group feels we can hike up to Crown before descending to the Grouse mountain lodge. The gondola down costs $10. If all goes well, we’ll be back in Van before dark for dins and drinks.

We’ll swim under waterfalls and have a communal lunch on a ridge or something. I’ll feed you chickpea chocolate chip cookies just promise to bring plenty of water (2+ litres)!

This is a beginner trip in the sense that no technical skills are required. The trail itself is steep and difficult though so be fit or willing to suffer.
