do the Jug Island Hike in Belcarra.... and you guessed it... a beer.

Our girl Stef has wanted to do this hike for awhile... It's in the Belcarra area and is a nice intermediate hike that is apparently far easier than the Grind. Rambling trail with lots of up and down...

Stef has done it once before so if you have any questions, feel free to post them. We can do a convoy out there if you like. We will meet at Trout Lake parking lot (The community centre parking lot) at 9.30am, leaving at 9.45am sharp. From there we will drive out. Please indicate in/update your RSVP whether you need a ride or can offer a ride from this location. If you’re offering, please let us know how many spaces you have in your vehicle. We’ll match people up with a driver at Trout Lake. Riders, please bring along some gas money to give to your kind driver. We'll include a brief stop at The parking lot at Heritage Mountain Shoppers Village on Ioco Rd at Ungless Way in Port Moody to ensure the group is still together.

For those people offering/needing rides from elsewhere, we’ll leave you to post comments and arrange this among yourselves.

For those folks meeting us at the start of the trail, we’ll meet by the covered picnic area, next to the main parking lot at 11am, departing shortly afterwards.

If you need to get a hold of me,[masked]-4357. If you have an Iphone or Android then the free "Twist" app does a nice job of scheduling convoys and showing where people are (with gps). I just need your cell number to add you to the convoy.

Whichever your method of getting there, it is highly recommended that you print and carry with you a set of directions to the trail head using Google Maps. Your destination should be entered as Belcarra Picnic Area, Belcarra Regional Park. We will do our best to keep the convoy together but can't be responsible for everyone getting there. We'll be starting the hike shortly after 11am. Latecomers not part of our convoy are welcome to try to catch up along the trail.

Bring good hiking shoes, water, and some lunch if you'd like. The hike leads us to a small beach looking out over Jug Island and Indian Arm, a great spot to hang out for a while, catch our breath and have a bite to eat.

Here is a link for more info... Please use this to familiarise yourself with the hike details.

After the hike we'll be driving back down to Port Moody and would love you to join us for a beer at the St James' Well Pub in Newport Village. 248 Newport Drive.

Carry on with your bad self.

      My friend, Katherine, can no longer make it, so I guess she doesn't need a ride!

    Hi,

  • Lisa

    I've had to change my RSVP to No due to feeling ill with the flu; not sure I"ll be well enough. Sakshi and Aloixe had asked for rides from me; please can someone accomodate them? sorry for the short notice.

    August 15, 2013

  • Lisa

    I have space for four (3 somewhat cuddly in the back) with me in my car :)

    August 12, 2013

    • Lisa

      So far I have Aloixe and Sakshi; I can meet u at the meeting spot at trout lake centre with everyone else then drive us out; I'm coming from New West so if you need a ride from the train somewhere along that way let me know :)

      August 14, 2013

    • Lisa

      sorry guys but I won't be able to come this sunday; I"m feeling sick and don't know if I'll be well enough by then.

    Hi, I am visiting Vancouver and would need a ride. Please contact me if yo have a spot in your car.

    August 12, 2013

  • Aloixe Z.

    Hello,
    I'm new and without car, so I'll need a ride, please!
    Thanks for all

    August 12, 2013

  • Jasmine

    Simon, some concerns:
    1. The time change from 1pm to 11am. What time are we to meet at Trout Lake? Is that still the plan?
    2. Will there be enough drivers? A lot of people, such as myself, need a ride. It will be a bit of a disaster if ten people who up needing rides and there is only one person with a car and room for three people or something! I REALLY want to go on this hike, but I need to know what time to meet (I can meet in Vancouver/along the skytrain line), and if I can get a ride (and of course compensation for gas will be given if requested).

    August 10, 2013

    • Trista M.

      Jasmine,
      You and your friend have a spot in my car :) Will figure out a time for us to meet closer to the date.

      August 10, 2013

  • Trista M.

    I'm still a YES!

    Yes, rides are an issue for me too. Maybe down the road we could all share a ride and pay - but understandably this would take some organizing etc. Past that any easy hikes within the tri city area that I can drive to I'd be in for sure...how about Lafarge lake to start?

    I am a newbie here.

    1 · August 10, 2013

    • Jasmine

      Kat, I really want want to go on more hikes, but I don't drive (not only do I not have a car, but I don't have a license, so I can't rent a vehicle or anything). This is why I can't organize hikes. But if people who drive can organize things, I am definitely interested, and of course I will pay my fair share of the vehicle rentals, etc. (As long as it doesn't break the bank--low paying job, student loans, etc etc.)

    I would love to come ! Sounds like a nice hike, but I would also need a ride please. :)

    I'll need a ride, please! (Transportation is a major barrier to me going on hikes.)
