Explore Mount Erskine Provincial Park Salt Spring Island [Moderate]

Mount Erskine is on the West side of Salt Spring Island and has spectacular views to the North and West. The park contains "a variety of features including the summit of Mount Erskine, coastal Douglas-fir forests, moss covered rocky outcrops and bluffs, dry southwest facing Garry oak ecosystems and riparian wetlands. In addition, the park preserves an excellent example of the red-listed arbutus/hairy manzanita plant community as well as other species and habitats at risk."

We will need to meet at the carpooling location at 8:00 am, so that we can organize, then catch the 9:00 am ferry to Salt Spring Island. Members will need to bring cash to cover; personal ferry fare: $12.00, portion of car fare: $10.00, and carpooling donation: $15.00. Dress for changing conditions, bring a lunch to have on the trail, and plenty of water (min. 1 litre). This should be considered an all day trip since we may stay until the 6:00pm ferry.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
