Participant Information

Crossover backpack between Cheakamus Lake and Black Tusk meadows.

On Saturday morning, to avoid lengthy car shuttle two independent parties  park at their choice of either Rubble Creek or Cheakamus Lake at opposite ends of the traverse. The two parties walk generally towards each other to meet about halfway between their respective starts and camp together on Saturday night close by many volcanic features which can be explored then or on following Sunday Morning. Both parties leave camp separately and continue walking to opposite ends of traverse from where they drive the car of the other party to dr a meeting place on Sunday afternoon where the cars are exchanged  to permit everyone to drive back home
