    Thanks Herbert for organizing the hike. It was a great hike and we were lucky with the weather. The sun came out to greet us at the top :). It was also great to hike with everyone today :).

    Hi, I would need a ride from the meeting place. In case anyone is driving from Vancouver, I would also appreciate a pickup at a Canada line station. Thanks.

    Hello everyone! If you are driving from Vancouver, can I possibly get a ride from you around Dunbar, Kitsilano, or along Broadway? Thank you!

    There is about 15 km from the turnoff on the highway to the parking lot for the trail. When we turn off the highway, is the road suitable for cars? I have a car, not a 4x4 or SUV. Thanks in advance.

      It is good for all cars; we will determine who is driving when we meet at Wal-mart (it is a washboard road for the 2nd half)

    Hi,
    I would be very grateful if someone could give me a ride. I live around Commercial Drive, I can meet you anywhere along the sky train:-)

      Hi Arun and Herbert,
      It sounds easier to meet at the parking lot indeed. skytrains start around 6.30 on Saturday so it will be fine :-)
