Next Hike

The next hike will be on Saturday, 22nd April.
We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am.

Just a reminder that the last Saturday in April, the 29th, will be the annual Texada Trekkers beach oyster roast and pot-luck at Raven Bay.  All hikers past and present are welcome as are spouses and significant others.  There will be a one way hike to Raven Bay that starts at the Canadian Legion in Van Anda at 10:00am for those who are able, and for those not hiking they can drive and park at the Raven Bay turnoff on the High Road [the road down to the bay is too rough for cars, OK for pickups and some sturdy SUV's] and walk or get a ride down to the bay.  

For more information contact David Taylor or Russ Sparks. 

Last week we had a great day for hiking and drove up to the gasline road crossing not far south of the Hydro Reactor Station. For some of the hikers this was their first visit to Mt. Davies and the trails through the forest and past the beaver ponds and the panoramic views at the top were all greatly appreciated.  It's a pretty good work-out too as the elevation change from parking place to the summit is about 1,000ft, 300 metres.
What a lovely bright and sunny day — lunchtime on the summit of Mt. Davies.
