All attendees have been contacted with the meeting location near Burrard Station for 9am Saturday. If you haven't received your email please contact the trip leader.


This trip is suitable for everyone and there is no limit on attendance as it is a very popular 1 day walk suitable for beginners. The trip is a great opportunity to meet other members of the club, and perhaps even see some snow! The trip will involve meeting for car pooling in downtown Vancouver then heading to Cypress Provincial Park just a half hour drive from the city. 

We'll walk from the Cypress Mountain Ski Resort Carpark to Eagle Bluffs via the two summits of Black Mountain. On a clear day the walk is considered by many as the best vantage point on Vancouver's North Shore. We'll pass cabin lake, along with numerous other subalpine lakes as along the serene forest trail.

Pack a lunch, wear sturdy (and hopefully dry) footwear and bring a raincoat. Please remember to wear warm clothes!
