Description:

Ever find a mountain with a cool name on google maps and think "woah that's a cool name how can I get there"?

I do.

The plan is to drive out early Saturday morning to the south end of Chilliwack Lake (2.5 hours) until the gate at Depot Creek Bridge, then follow a 'trail' about 2km to the end of the lake. The trail apparently quickly deteriorates as we enter the ecological reserve (big trees, old growth forest) and we will be eventually bushwhacking south, following the Chilliwack River, ideally reaching the base of Nodoubt peak (but also possibly stopping beforehand) and setting up camp there. Either that afternoon or the next morning we will try to bushwhack/scramble up to Nodoubt peak (~1500m elv. gain, looks less technical from the side we will be approaching from), where we should get some pretty cool views of the Cascades. Sunday afternoon we hike out & drive back to vangroovie (following our marked trail).

The distances in this trip are relatively small, but the amount of time needed to bushwhack through old growth coastal forest with a full pack should not be underestimated! This is an introductory trip to advanced bushwhacking, meaning you should have some prior bushwacking experience, but may not have done any extensive bushwacking at this level. Of course, experience can be replaced by high levels of stoke and grit in this case.
