Participant Information

An early summer hike into the subalpine of Flora Pass. Depending on snow conditions and participants, we may continue on to Flora Peak. Elevation gain to Flora Pass 1150 m (3450 ft). Flora Peak another 200 m (600 ft)

The trail starts out as a good quality switch-backing trail and will likely hit snow before the pass at 1740 m, although the open south-facing slopes below the pass may be more open. On June 8th, I was at Garibaldi Lake and there was about a metre of snow at 1475 m.

Sturdy boots and poles or ice axe are recommended.

We'll meet at the Boundary Chevron at 7 am and leave by 7:10 am. Assuming we start hiking by 9:30 - 10 am, we should be back at the trailhead by about 5 - 5:30 pm.  Sunset is 9:15 pm.
