Default Eagle Mountain (Halvor Lunden), Saturday June 9th

Eagle Mountain (Halvor Lunden), Saturday June 9th

Return distance: 15 kms
Elevation gain: 1020m
Meeting time: 8:00 am
Estimated time: 6-7 hours
Meeting Place: Northeast corner of the parking lot (furthest to the right when looking toward the lake)

Straight from the BC Hydro website:

“This route is recommended for experienced and fit hikers only. The trail to Lindsay Lake is the most popular of the three loops along this trail. Climb to El Paso Junction, then turn left and cross Buntzen Creek. Passing through the ancient mountain forest you will encounter several spectacular viewpoints overlooking Vancouver. At Lindsay Lake Junction (at the north end of Lindsay Lake) turn right and head south through the "lakes district" back to El Paso Junction. Return to the main parking area along the same trail you started on.“

Short notice, sorry. Time to get back in the saddle and this seems as good a place as any to get the heart pumping again. Pace will be moderate. Option at summit to continue to Dilly Dally Peak. Everyone welcome.

I went as far as el paso junction last saturday, that was the snow line then. I turned around there, not being familiar with the trail. I want to go back and finish the trail when the the snow melts

Thanks NVH - good to know.
AT: yes, it has been a while. Too long

I should have added 'rain or shine'; forecast is rain - let's hope it comes in the afternoon

Good to see you back Dean.Could a return trip to the Capilano Trailer park be in the works [)].
Be careful around Little Vahalla up there it might be a tad slippery.

Hi Dean, I'm glad to see you here again. I guess the little ones are growing, so you have more time for playing outside. I didn't notice this post until today, otherwise, I might have joined you. Keep in touch.
