Please do not come if you have to be home at a certain time. We are not comfortable with anyone leaving the group to turn around and go back at any point on their own. Safety in numbers. It ruins the mood if someone has to turn back and spoils the day for others. *****

Dewdney will curve to the right after a couple of kms, if you continue straight instead of turning you will be on Keystone.

Some rough terrain and hills, approx 4.5 - 5 hr. hike. Beautiful falls to see and forest to travel through. Basically a fairly easy to moderate hike if you used to hiking.
