This trip is for members only (no guest)

trip info

We will gather at the parking lot and sort out car pool logistics.  Extra vehicles will be parked at the side streets.  We will drive to the trailhead located at Lions Bay.  The reason for an early start is to ensure we get a parking spot at trailhead and to get enough daylight for a very long hike.

We will ascend from trailhead to Mt. Brunswick.  Then we will traverse through Magnesia emergency shleter route cross over to Mt. Harvey.  We will then decend back to trailhead.  This will be a very long day.
