Participant Information

This is a very underrated area and this would be my first time forey there.

There is some scrambling involved, so a helmet is mandatory. If you are afraid of heights, don't join  the trip:)

A bit of bushwhacking would be required as well, as there is no trail most of the time.

The road should be drivable in any AWD car, last reports I've read don't mention any waterbars on the Hope Creek FSR spur that come off the Hurley FSR.

Please be considerate and do not sign up unless you are 100% committed for the trip and you are in very good physical condition. 

Will be moving at a moderate-fast pace. Not for slow people, sorry.

MUST have :

  • Food for the whole weekend
  • First aid kit!
  • Bear spray
  • Helmet
  • Camping equipment

The plan is to drive on Saturday to the trailhead and hike to Opal lake, where we are going to camp for the night(2h from the trailhead). The same day we can go up to Goat Mtn and/or Tenquille Mtn.

Sunday morning, will climb Chipmunk Mtn, then pack our camp and head back to cars/drive home.
