Description:

Brody Granger and I are going to Mount Macfarlane and Pierce Lakes for an overnight hike. This hike near Chilliwack includes two beautiful lakes en route to the summit, wildflowers, and awesome views. It's about 17.5km and 1,850 m of elevation gain total with some short sections of scrambling towards the summit - so you should have good physical fitness and some experience. My preference would be to camp at the upper Pierce lake, but we can see when we get there what we want to do.

If you're interested but unsure if this trip is for you, shoot me an email :) Dates are flexible depending on peoples' availability; I would just prefer to not do Saturday-Sunday to when it's more busy (for example, Friday-Saturday instead).
