The next hike will be on Saturday, 28th November.
We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am
Last week we drove towards Shingle Beach turning off on the left after Eagle Creek to a parking place about half way up to Thompson Road. This is a circular hike so we don't have to back-track except on the very steep side road that takes us up to the top of the rounded landmark of Eagle Mountain. There are small grassy bluffs on the west side at the top and the view on a good day is quite spectacular.
As you can see from my photo this week we were lucky this time and had a very good day.
Lunching on the top of Eagle Mountain with a view looking north-west. The forested island is Dick Island at Shelter Point and Surprise Mt. is just behind Texada Quarry.
