The pass offers great veiws north down Wileman valley and across to Holy Cross Mountain. The sunny south-facing aspect of this trail means that it is usually dry when many other trails in the area are still snowbound.The distance for this trail is 6.4 km. elevation gain is 425M..2-3 hours return plus 1hr each way driving time.We will drive to Sentinel Rec. area on hi-way #40 west of Longveiw. Once we reach the top of the pass we can do a short walk over to the celebrated Boundary Pine which is on the cover of R.M. Patterson,s book.I have done this hike 2 times already the most recent last June.Things you should bring are your backpack with lunch ,snacks ,water,proper hiking boots,rain coat or poncho ,warm jacket,bear spray if you have it.Please bring a pair of runners to change into after the hike and a plactic bag to put wet or muddy boots in.This will be a moderate pace hike.If you are in a big hurry and think there is a prize for the fastest and first person to the top,this hike is not for you.There should be a few early spring flowers out like the Prairie Crocus. For those of you coming on the C-train please let me know by email or text or phone me at[masked],and I will pick you up from there on the way out from A+W.Get off on the east side,facing Wendy's and Tim Hortons.If you have any questions about gear or any other concern email me or contact me directly via phone.If you are not driving please bring some cash to pay your driver.The reason we are not meeting at Somerset C-train station is due to lack of parking on a weekday.
