|Description||A unique opportunity to see Seymour Narrows from our side, and the site of the once infamous Ripple Rock. Have lunch at the spot where the access tunnels were drilled to create the world’s biggest non-nuclear explosion that pulverized the rock (and assumedly the fish and anything else swimming by at the time).|
|Meeting Place||On Walcan Road, just off junction of Hyacinthe Bay Road and Walcan Road. I will be in a green Toyota 4Runner. The “new” access is down several kms of rough logging road so good clearance required. We can arrange carpooling and park extra cars in the Morte Lake parking lot if needed.|
|Departure Time||Leave meeting place at 8:30 am; we should then be on the trail by 9:00 at the latest. Unfortunately, the current times are not in our favour as slack is at noon on June 30, but the earlier start should hopefully let us see some action in the Narrows.|
||Moderate – a scramble up and down over the side of Mount Lolo for the view on way there, narrow steep section on Maud Island; rest of hike gentle to some grade.|
|Dogs?||No dogs. Sections of trail on Maud Island and Mount Lolo are too narrow and steep to safely mix with dogs.|
|Notes:||Email leader, firstname.lastname@example.org, to sign up for this hike. If this hike is cancelled due to weather I will email all registrants by 10 pm night before.
Ever since 2011, use of a new forest access road has shortened the hike considerably to a comfortable 4-5 hours.
