This trip is for members only .
We will gather at the Wal-mart parking lot and work out car pool logistics. Extra vehicles will be parked on the side street (Skeena) running north to south adjacent to parking lot. Convoy will take Hwy-1 and drive to Harrison. It will probably take up to 2 hours to drive to the trailhead from Wal-mart.

The first half of the trip is on a resource road, and the second is on a trail. There is some muddy section (that's why I suggested gaitors; some over grown section towards the top, I will bring some tools to clear and mark trail).
