Description:  "Located just outside of Manning Park at it's western edge, Mount Outram is one of the tallest peaks in the area.  Although the hike to the summit involves a gruelling vertical gain of almost two kilometres, the views are well worth it - a 360 panoramic view and alpine meadows filled with fragrant wild flowers await."  from Clubtread.com

Total Distance: 18.0 km (return)
Estimated Time: 9 hours
Average Grade: 19.8%
Elevation Gain: 1781 m
Start Elevation: 680 m
Max Elevation: 2461 m




Max group size is partially dependent on number of drivers/vehicles.

General Plan:  We'll meet very early at two independent meeting spots: Burnaby Chevron (6am) and 160th Park and Ride (6:15am).  Both groups will then met at a breakfast place (Tim Hortons) in Chilliwack.  We'll then travel to the trail-head, just inside Manning Park.  Our plan will be to begin hiking about 9am and pace ourselves to ensure we return to the trail-head parking lot by 6pm.  Please bring a headlamp and a few extra layers of warm clothing in case we're delayed.  Also bring some rain-wear clothing in case the forecast changes.  If all goes according to plan, we'll arrive back in the Vancouver area about 9pm.  Since this could become a *very* long day of hiking, please bring enough extra food and water to remain healthy and happy for 12hrs, thank you!   That said, we can expect our hiking pace to be "moderate"... definitely NOT "fast"... and we will regroup from time-to-time for our safety.

Organizer will use the Trip Planning forum for additional information as required.

Carpooling Info:  please be aware the driving required for this trip will be about 5hrs total.  The suggested carpooling shared amount, when the driver has 3 passengers, will be $25 per passenger.  Please bring funds for this, thank you :-)

Emergency Info:  please make sure your Emergency Contact info has been added to your web-account profile.  You can do this by logging into the bcmc.ca website, click on: My Account (top of page)... then click on Edit Emergency Contact (top-left column).  Please re-enter your password to complete the process.  Your emergency contact info is stored *privately* and only made available to those organizing trips *you* choose to attend.

Medical Info:  any info that should be shared with the organizer(s), please send an email and/or phone ASAP.  For example, if you are very allergic to bee/wasp bites, or you are taking medication that could be vital information to First Aid Responders.  Anything you choose to share will remain private.

Cancellation:  We'll check the weather forecast for where we're going the evening before we meet.  If the weather forecast does NOT appear to be adequate for a safe outing then the trip will be cancelled and everyone will be notified by email.
