For terms and conditions please refer to www.ecospirit.ca  

This trip is for members only.

logistics

We will gather at Buntzen Lake (east parking lot which is adjacent to the service road gate).  I will be at the SE corner of this lot closest to the gate.  If you are coming in from Vancouver or Burnaby and need a ride, I can pick you up at major transit point. 

Trip details

This mountain is located at the east end of Buntzen Lake.  We will hike up Lindsay Lake (steep).  If trail conditions are good, we will proceed to Tangled Summit to the north.  We will retrack our footsteps to return to the cars.  This is to avoid the very steep descend via Swan Falls.
