This year there will be snow - especially amongst the trees and gully, etc. *is looking at seymour right now and can see a dense snow pack*. If you are familiar with snow camping and equipped for it, it's no problem (but markers/trail signs might be buried and if you are not familiar with the area, you could get lost).
There are other places where you can wilderness camp at lower elevations (burke mtn, eagle ridge coquitlam, golden ears, etc), below the snow line. But I am sure others will chime in soon enough.
Hey WildernessMan, I looked into your suggestions and Burke Mountain appears to be my best bet!
My tentative plan is to arrive at Port Coquitlam & District Hunting & Fishing Club, around 6PM, and hike a distance of 2.5KM and 350M in elevation gain to Prichett Creek, setting up camp there for the night:
The next day, I'll hike to Munro and Dennett Lakes, then trace my trail back to where I set up camp the night prior. The out and back trail looks to be a total of ~15KM in distance and ~550M in elevation gain, which I feel pretty comfortable doing in a day, given the abundance of creeks in this area.
A few questions:
-Can I park overnight for a couple of nights at the Hunting & Fishing Club?
-Am I allowed to set up camp anywhere, as long as I respect the nearby ecosystem?
-Are the creeks safe to drink from, with a water filter?
-Is there any cell service around this area, for emergencies?
-Should I bring my bear canister for this trail?
-Any other tips you have?
