Archive:Manning Park Day Hikes
A pair of hikes in Manning Park. Both are beginner friendly. We will camp at the car camp ground in Manning Park on Saturday night.
Saturday morning: meet at the Tim Hortons in Chilliwack at 8 am (7670 Vedder Rd. Take exit 119).
Saturday: Skagit River trail. 14.5km, basically flat. We'll be on the lookout for blooming wild rhododendrons. We will either do a car shuffle in the morning or the group will split into two.
Saturday evening: cooking competition and singing. Bring those guitars, songbooks, shakers, ukuleles, flutes, and voices!
Sunday: Lightening Lakes trail. 24km, basically flat. At the end of the day we drive back to Vancouver.
