INDIAN GRAVES RIDGE

Indian Graves ridge is a short grunt that takes you up to a beautiful ridge walk which goes for a few km. and works into a loop which is 8.6 km. and only 225M elevation which the most of it is behind you after about 45 minutes.The hike time is 3-4 hrs. driving time about 2 hrs. round trip.Bring your pack with your lunch ,water ,poles and winter hiking clothes since most hikes I have done since mid Sept.have had snow at high elevations.We will meet at the A+W to form a carpool. Any one coming on the LRT get off at Somerset station and text or phone me at[masked] and I can pick you up since the A+w is a short distance away.DOGS WELCOME- MEMBERS ONLY.Good hike to wear off all the Halloween candy.

    No problem Wayne. The four of us adapted. It was a great day to be out for a hike as the weather, company and scenery were all good . See you on the next one.

    Sorry to Lynne Darryl,Joe Victor for not getting to hike with the rest of the group. The directions I gave you were correct,the problem was the red gate and the small road across from where we parked was washed away because of the flood in June. Lucky I was there before the flooding in June otherwise I probably would not have foiund it.We walked up the mountain next to where we parked and did the ridge walk about 3.5 km and went down into the valley with a bit of bushwacking and back to the creek were we parked.I guess we should have did a pre-meet at hiway #22,before we turned down Johnston creek Rd.Sometimes the most difficult thing to find on a hike is the trailhead.

      The scenery was great from any vantage point.... we were kind of glad we went up and down a couple of smaller hills... always following the fence as indicated.... glad we didn't scale up to that ridge.... another time perhaps

    I think it makes sense for me to come south via C train rather than drive so for sure I will take you up,Wayne, on your offer of a pick up at Somerset. I will text you on my arrival. Just in case my cell #[masked]

    Sorry to bail out ... I am on field work and will be back in Calgary late Thursday evening instead of afternoon. I don't think I can make it early Friday so rather than a no-show, I've decided to just cancel. Enjoy the hike!
