The next hike will be on Saturday, 7th September.
We meet at the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am
Last week we had a smaller group of hikers than usual and were able to car-pool in a single vehicle for a change. The plan was to do some exploration with the hope we might be able to reduce the length of a hiking trail near Masyk Farm and also to check the condition of an old logging road that runs quite steeply down the east side of the island. The shortcut trail through some mature open forest took longer than anticipated and was flagged, but will need some cleaning before being comfortable for walkers. We did find a high point near the old logging road, but the hoped for view towards the mainland just does not exist there. We hope to try again another day.
My photo this week is one taken a few weeks ago when we hiked part way down the south side of Mt. Davies to a new lunch spot at the top of a very steep cliff overlooking Shingle Beach. In the bottom right corner of the picture you can just see the very new and useful logging road that extends south from the Shingle Beach road towards Cook Bay.
