Saturna Island Group – Sept. 2018 Wow! Careful there!!
Views on the Galiano Hike
Royal Roads Hike – Oct. 2018
This group is for m embers who want a rigorous hike, with varying degrees of difficulty, lasting 2-3 hours. In addition to a regular hike we may also schedule an alternate, longer more rigorous hike. Members should be reasonably fit, wear hiking shoes or boots, bring water and a snack. Many bring hiking poles on the more hilly hikes. After the hike, coffee is our reward! The hiking group meets Fridays at 8:50 am. at the Fowler Road parking lot.
The group relies upon members to suggest and lead hikes. When proposing a Hike, please refer to the schedule and provide the date & destination. When submitting your specific hike details for group circulation, kindly aim to have these e-mailed to me latest by the Wednesday afternoon before hike day.
When considering to lead a hike, you may find that our list of hikes will be of use. The data has been compiled by Mick Phillips and, while not exhaustive, provides a comprehensive list of locations tackled over the years by the CB55+ Group. We’re indebted to Mick for pulling this together for us. A number of these will be quite familiar to most of the Group however, for those members less so, a quick “google” will provide you with more detail. That said, if anyone has other fresh ideas on where we could hike, please do feel free to bring them forward. As with new leaders, new destinations will always be welcomed.

October 19th — McMinn Park – Rithet Bog – Boulderwood Hill
We will meet the group at the McMinn parking area for a 9:15 am. departure. We plan to start at McMinn park, walk Lochside and Rithetwood to Lohbrunner Pond, then to the Ralston trail, round the south side of Rithet bog and over Boulderwood Hill back to McMinn park.
The route is about 8.5 km. and should take about two hours. One steep up and down – poles optional.
Coffee is up to the group but the Ridge would be convenient.
Alternate: Heavenly Valley
