Read full posting. Failure to do so will leave you on the waitlist.

An automated waitlist has been created. Please ensure they're answered truthfully, as it aids in organizing. If you don't receive the rsvp questions upon your registration, please contact me via p.m. Any last minute changes to carpooling can drastically change the course of the event, as much as being cancelled.

Only RSVP if you're sincerely interested in this event. If you cancel within 24hrs without a reasonable reason you will possibly be given a no-show. Life happens, this I understand completely.

This hike isn't for beginners, but for those with experience with this elevation + distance combo. NO OVERLY SLOW POKES or Photo danglers, PLEASE! We'll stop for the odd photo, but not for every wildflower.

Dogs aren't allowed for a variety of reasons.

After, we stop in Lake Louise or Field for a quick refreshment.

Elevation: 1,350m

Dist.: 23km +/-

Pace: Moderate, but slower on the incline. Although, I'm flexible with paces. We'll stop for the odd photo along the way. NO SLOW POKES, BEGINNERS or PHOTO DANGLERS PLEASE.
