Trip Planning Questions

1) If I have not hiked with you, please give a few examples of recent trips you have been on which will illustrate your skill and fitness level. To go on this trip you should be able to do the Grouse Grind or BCMC trails in around an hour.

2) What kind of vehicle will you be driving and how many people can you take. The Furry Creek FSR requires AWD or better.

Participant Information

We will have access via the Furry Creek FSR to the start of the trail which will save 10 km of walking on the FSR.  Then it is about a ten km hike up to the hut with an elevation gain of about 800 m. The hut has mats for six and a propane heater.  Bring all your own cooking equipment.  From the hut, you can scramble up Mt. Sheer or even make a longer trip to Sky Pilot. Lots of scope for exploration

Please contact Ian McGilivary for information as he will be co-coordinating this trip.
