Trip Planning Questions

It is a stipulation by Ministry of Mines that only club members can participate when the gate is opened. Are you a club member? Do you have a vehicle that can travel gravel roads?

Participant Information

We'll be driving up Furry Creek and then clearing the trail to the hut as far as we can. (I have the key to the Furry Creek gate.) We have a brush cutter and chainsaw. Anyone else that can help by bringing another power tool, using loppers and/or tossing the cut brush off the trail.

The road is in good shape. There are some inclines that are not too steep so a 2WD vehicle would be okay, I think. No significant potholes or loose rock on the road.

You will need some work gloves, eye protection, hearing protection (recommended), helmet (recommended), steel toed boots (optional), long pants (recommended).

Bring lunch, bug dope, sunscreen etc.
