Please read the entire post before signing up. To come along on this hike you need to be in excellent condition as the hike is approximately 30 km in distance and 9 hours in time at a moderate pace.


It's an absolutely beautiful and scenic hike, intermediate difficulty (moderate uphill sections), and if our pace allows it we can take a short detour and head down to Garibaldi Lake before returning to the parking lot. Doing so would add another 3 km to the distance.


Here's a link with a description of the hike.

We'll meet in the Rubble Creek parking lot with the exact location marked on the clickable map above. Please try to arrive at least 15 minutes in advance so we can begin the hike at 8 am. Carpooling is an option, so leave a comment if you'd be interested in that. Passengers are expected to contribute $15 to help cover travel expense.


Please bring enough water and food to sustain yourself for 9+ hours of time, and after the hike we could stop and have something to eat on our way back if there's interest in that.


The weather so far is looking good for Saturday but the hike will be cancelled if there's any chance of rain or heavy cloud in the forecast. I'll update and confirm things by Friday.


Thanks, and I look forward to at least a few of you coming out to hike and admire beautiful BC scenery. :)
