Some people say that this hike is suited to winter walking because its high
point is not more than 800 m (2600 ft) above the sea level. Well,
personally I will do this hike after March.
At first, we climbed the bluffs overlooking the highway, it was a short distance before we entered the forest.
Besides the trees, there are some viewpoints but the rain didn't allow us to take good pictures. After that, the trail drops to join an abandoned logging road.
2 km later the road is blocked and we have to turn left, again into the
forest. Then we started to go up and down, passing gullies and watching
the first signs of what is going to be a very active mosquito season.
300 meters later there is a viewpoint but for me the view of the lake was enough.
On our way back the rain was already leaving us.
And we were lucky enough to see two Grouses. We were only able to picture this one
Now with the Sun on our shoulders we returned to the viewpoints and we took a quick picture of Squamish and Stawamus Chief. Unfortunately Mount Garibaldi was still covered by clouds.
Trip Time: 5:30 hours (including breaks)
