Earn your Turkey!  Join us on our Mount Strachan Turkey Trot :)

This trek is a 12km Loop to 1459m Summit of Mount Strachan in Cypress Bowl (Start Elev 910m).

We will start up the Howe Sound Crest Trail to Strachan Meadows, and then up to the Summit of Mount Strachan.  Return via Mt. Strachan trail past the old T-33 crash site and Emily Lake.

Moderate pace with short breaks. Partnering and regrouping along the way.


Trip information on ClubTread:  http://www.clubtread.com/Routes/Route.aspx?Route=267

Great weather resource for remote locations (note this is for weather at 1234m on nearby Hollyburn, so subtract ~1C for the summit):



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