Mt. Brunswick/Mt. Harvey hike

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.

    Alex: this is super tough. Try Garibaldi Lake. You need to study the description before signing up!

    Hello, Min can vouch for me that I am very capable of doing the hike on August 25th. Also, if I am taken of the waiting list, I would require a ride. I live at 19th and Dunbar but would take transit to meet a member that would be driving.
