Itinerary:
Though this one is in the scrambles book, itís become less popular since the road has been gated at the highway. So letís do it as an overnight and have time to linger at the views and brave a swim in at least one of the lakes!

Plan is to leave downtown Vancouver by 8am Saturday morning, park at the Furry Creek gate, just off the highway. Weíll camp at either Beth or Gordon lake depending on the group. Then up to the summit on Sunday, and return back the way we came. About 26km and 1600m elevation gain in total.

Please sign up only if you are 100% committed rain or shine, and are willing to hike as a group. Pace will be the faster side of moderate.

This should not be your first hike of the year, but first time overnighters are welcome (I have gear to share if needed).
