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 road 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. The weather forecast is highly variable. If the weather looks bad on Tuesday it will be rescheduled for Wednesday.

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

Bring lunch etc.
