A joint event for Nature Vancouver and the Old Growth Conservancy Society.
Description of event: We will be walking the Trans-Canada Trail starting from the Quarry Lookout Picnic Area 8.3 km on the Cypress Parkway (just past the third switchback). Our route passes along the north-west margin of and partly through the Old Growth Conservancy. We will return to the Picnic Area via the Conservancy Crossing Trail and other forest trails. The old growth forest is now protected as a conservation park by the Municipality of the District of West Vancouver. Experience the thrill of being surrounded by candelabra-topped redcedar veterans in a pristine old growth forest setting. Bring lunch and a beverage. Meeting time & location: 09:30 am McDonalds, Park Royal for car pooling. Duration: 3-4 hours. Elevation Gain: 180 metres. Difficulty rating: C3 to C4.
