Nicely done. It seems that a path has been worn in by CFA folks since my days in the area. I still remember the first time to CN1, peaking, and realizing how far away from the car I was. I have never...

I tried to repeat this loop last week with a start on the north side of Newman. All was fine until 900m, where I found blueberry bush hell up to the top-out at 1350. I would not recommend these...

I get annoyed by over-taping as well, it seems like ugly pollution waving in your face. My pockets are always full of crap by the time I get home, and sometimes it contains excessive flagging.

Now I'm getting jealous. Great trip. My attempts were always on the south side with retreats due to partners getting too uncomfortable. I will look into the N side now that I have seen your pics.

I really appreciate your posting all these semi-obscure routes. Gives me lots of future trip ideas. On your pic with the route marked, did you descend down the bowl to the right?

I skied the loop once many years ago. We were able to ski out on the old Kallahne road, but I think the alder is too big now, so the route out would have a lot more walking. The Lost Lake shelter...

Hi Mike,
I have done your connector a couple of times. My old one went left where you cut right heading to the big boulder. Your route is definitely more pleasant. Do you use the trails to go for...

Hello Newman creek loop

This bluebird week gave lots of incentive to explore some more. This loop is absolutely fantastic above the 800 m elevation. However, one has to also do the 2 lower 800 m legs, which will not make...

DWW: it is about 1200-1300 m elevation gain, so about 1000 ft/hr. I have no pics, I was in trees until I broke out on the ridge in a snow squall with 20m visibility. Today would have been a perfect...

I believe the summer pay parking bubble is smaller than the winter one. Summer is mostly or all free, but that can change depending on the management.
