Participant Information

Trip Description: 

An easy to moderately paced loop of lower Mount Fromme in North Vancouver. Get out with us for a hike before the remnants of Typhoon Songda arrive.

We will be promoting storm awareness during the hike, discussing the potential hazards from trees, landslides, riverbanks and debris chutes.

-

We will be hiking several trails including Varley and Baden-Powell, and then returning via the Dempsey Connector.

Along the way we will check out the flow and hazards near Lynn Creek and Kilmer Creek.

Expected distance ~10km. Expected time ~2.5 to ~3.5 hours. Partnering and regrouping along the way.

Easy options to bail out early along the way in case winds pick up, or someone needs to leave early.
