1515 Home Road NW, Calgary, AB
Looking to get out on Monday, and I figured for this one why not see who's interested/free and find out what they would like to do.
Based on feedback, we will head out to Larch Valley. From there we will go as far as people are comfortable - maybe stop below sentinel pass, maybe go up it. We'll see how the day goes.
Although this is 'moderate' it's quite easy and anyone can do this.
Distance: ~11 KM
Elevation Gain: ~600M
Difficulty: T3 If unsure what this means, please familiarize yourself.
Estimated trip time: 4-6 hours, always be prepared for 24 hours.
Trailhead: Moraine Lake, Lake Louise.
Required personal gear: Sturdy hiking footwear, layered clothing with a waterproof shell, personal first aid kit, headlamp(s) with extra batteries, food and water - you can never have too much
Recommended personal gear: Hiking poles, gaiters, map/compass, camera.
Please bring cash for car-pool drivers. Gas for this location is $25 each.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me,[masked]
Real-time tracking while we're out, feel free to share with emergency contacts. Be aware this is not always 100% and authorities shouldn't be called because it misses a few updates.
Waivers: As per the new policy for waivers; I will bring the group waiver form with me to both the Calgary Meetup location and the trailhead. You must sign it before you will be allowed to go on this hike. You will also be asked to provide the name and phone number of an emergency contact. You are fully aware that organizers are not professional guides and you assume all responsibility for your safety and well-being. You are fully prepared with proper gear and you're physically fit to do this hike with the group.
