The promised sunshine never happened, but we had a mild, foggy day for this hike with four people. We began on the Hope Spring Trail and then continued on to the mossy bluffs at the south end of Heriot Ridge. We traversed along and then climbed up to the High Bluff, which in better weather has a great view. We descended and took the Homewood trail through the forest travelling more-or-less east. We looped around to meet back up with the Gowlland Trail and continued on to the always impressive Old Growth Grove for lunch. We finished the loop following the Thompson Trail. There were lots of mushroom and fall leaves. 9.3 km; 3½ hours.
