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.





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