Destination: Longworth Lookout
The Caledonia Ramblers will be leading a Strenuous (D5d) snowshoe up to Longworth Lookout, 85 km east of Prince George on the north side of the Fraser River, on Saturday, March 18th. Participants need to be fairly confident and physically able to do this hike as it is a 14 km round trip. Participants must have avalanche gear and AST1 training to go on this trip. Participants should consider bringing both ice cleats (ice grippers) and snowshoes for this trip, depending on weather and snow conditions. They should also bring hiking boots, 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 7:30 a.m. at the Highway 16 East, Petro-Can parking lot.
The carpool fee is $30
