Go Hiking on Burke Mountain with the Burke Mountain Naturalists on Sunday, June 8

At the conclusion of Environment Week and to celebrate the 19th anniversary of the creation of Pinecone-Burke Provincial Park, the Burke Mountain Naturalists will host a free guided hike on Burke Mountain on Sunday, June 8th. You should be prepared to cross a few small creeks by easy boulder-hopping, though there will be help in crossing safely. This moderate hike on the Woodland Walk Trail will travel through a lovely mature second growth forest. Highlights of the hike will include Saw Blade Falls, a peek a boo view of Coquitlam Lake, an old-growth Douglas fir tree on Coho Creek, and occasional logging artifacts. There will be an elevation gain of approximately 300 m (985 ft) and the roundtrip distance is 11.5 km (7.2 mi). Participants should wear sturdy hiking footwear; bring water, a lunch, and appropriate clothing for this 5 hour hike. The trail is not suitable for young children. A waiver will need to be signed to participate on this outing. The hike will depart at 8 am. Please contact Ian (604-939-4039) to register and for meeting location.
