Next Hike.

The next hike will be on Saturday, 18th June.
We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10.00am

Last week we drove south towards Shingle Beach and parked on the roadside a short distance south of the V.I. power line.  Walking back north along the road, then south on the side road that ends at the mouth of Stromberg Creek we stopped at the beach long enough to have a group photo taken with a time delay setting that let everyone appear together in the shot.  The trail is quite slow going at times as some sections involve steep slopes both up and down and damp rocks have to be negotiated with great care. The rewards are in the views from the grassy bluffs, the old growth cedar giants and some very curious arbutus. At Yew Tree Bay where we left the trail to return to the vehicles there are both ancient yew trees and some extra large arbutus.

Texada Trekkers at Secret Beach at the north end of the new trail that starts at the Shingle Beach campground.
