Willow River Interpretive Site to Wildlife Look-Out Snowshoe Trip

January 17th, 2016.

Location: About a thirty minute drive east of Prince George on the north-side of Highway 16

Nine ramblers and two guests had a mild wintry day navigating through a mix of tightly grown small-treed forest, unclassified roads, new forests, mixed forests and sections of trail to reach the Wildlife Look-Out area from the Willow River Interpretive Site. As the crow flies the distance is about 3 km between the two locations, but due to the enthusiasm of some of the group for bushwhacking and meandering here and there – the route taken took five-and-a half hours plus breaks, and covered a distance of 7.5 km!

Special thanks to Darren for hacking a path through the deep brushy areas, and to Kim for locating the correct unclassified road toward the end when the leader was unable to see the map on his GPS due to fogged up glasses!
