Hike Details

Giscome Portage

January 27, 2024 - 7:45 am

Destination: Giscome Portage

The Caledonia Ramblers will be leading an easy snowshoe along on the Giscome Portage on Saturday Jan. 27th. Designated a Heritage Trail, it crosses the Continental Divide, which separates the Pacific and Arctic watersheds. Historically the route was known and used by the indigenous peoples of the area. Participants should consider bringing both ice cleats (ice grippers) and snowshoes for this trip, depending on weather and snow conditions. They should also bring a day backpack, sufficient water or perhaps something hot to drink, adequate food or snacks, extra warm clothing and gaiters. Hiking poles may also prove useful.  Please meet 15 minutes before the scheduled departure time of 8:00 a.m. at the Prince George City Hall parking lot.

The carpool fee is $10
