We meet at the Royal Canadian Legion in Van Anda at 10:00am.
Last week we had an extra long hike and a fairly long drive to get there. Russ Creek flows down to the sea on the east side of the island very close to North-east Point and our hike took us from a logging road at an elevation of about 600 ft down to the beach and back. There are trails now on both sides of the creek and in many places there are good spots to view the many waterfalls and rapids. Where the ground levels out the creek is wider and long pools have formed and are shaded by the thick canopy of the many old growth trees.
The plan for this Saturday is to hike a new trail route that will take us to the cliffs and bluffs on the north side of Kirk Lake.
Some are quite small, others higher and more impressive, but all the waterfalls on Russ Creek are very lovely.
