Sorry Zeljkok, only just saw this (I don't visit Clubtread very often these days).

A lovely little free campsite is Dinner Rock, a few km south of Lund. It's right on the water. There is also a...

Sorry, haven't been on CT for a while. A lovely loop trail (1/2 day) goes from Dinner Rock park to Browne Creek, on to Hurtado Bay and Point and ends up back at Dinner Rock. If you can arrange two...

I have very wide feet (although much smaller than yours), and Keen makes a nice boot with a wide fitting.

I would vote for going in via Read and the Redondas. There's some lovely paddling around there.

Shuttle from Saltery Bay to the Branch 41 turnoff might be expensive - it's definitely a 4x4 trip. That said, it is lovely but steep up to Troubridge from Br 41, through beautiful first growth. Then...

I don't think it is garbage. If you are trying to scope out a new trail, you need markers. They are important to indicate detours from the main trail. Up here on the Sunshine Coast, it is used to...

How fast things get out of date - I understand that Emma Lake is in the new book. Unfortunately a massive slide has made it inaccessible at present. A bunch of local heroes are working on creating a...

Nice to see some shots of one of my favourite hikes. The only thing that I miss about living in the Lower Mainland is the access to the alpine - but then I remember the traffic, and I'm happy to be...

That's a beautiful view from up there, especially in winter. In summer the view is still good, but it's a pretty boring grunt to get up there.

No need to get picked up at Saltery Bay on your return, just walk onto the ferry if you can stand waiting another day for a shower. There is a bus that runs from PR to Lund on Tuesdays and Fridays,...

So much snow still! One of my favourite areas, but I like the less arduous approach, coming up from Canyon Creek road via Damfino Lakes. Lovely to see all those glacier lilies in your photos.

Perhaps you should come out this way and do the circle tour (Vancouver to Sechelt to Powell River to Comox and then back down the island to Vancouver) to see what you think about the ferry line...

Our focus here tends to be Courtnay/Comox if we need something from the mainland. That ferry is not usually very busy, except for the usual long weekend crowds, and it is pretty easy to plan around...

That pretty much sums up why we love Powell River. To start with the cons:

- small population (about 20,000 on the peninsula, about % in Powell River itself). I don't mind this, but it does mean...

Most of us here in Powell River think that won't happen. Too many dollars and the gas/time costs would equal taking the ferry.

Oh dear, looking at this TR makes me SO nostalgic for the days when it was easy to post a TR and photos to ClubTread - and when it was a vibrant community. Sad about what has happened to this site.

Cathedral isn't really a very large park. If you take the shuttle you won't need a full week there. The Rim is the obvious must-do hike, but there is really only about 3 - 4 days worth of day hikes...

Both plans look good. My personal preference would be the Fairview/Rainy Day plan. The lakes can be a bit of a gong show on a long weekend.

The Fairview Bay cabin is now enclosed at the bottom....
