Description Planning four days of hiking on beautiful Cortes Island, staying at Linnaea Farm House. This is an eight bedroom rustic farmhouse, on the edge of Gunflint Lake at the gateway to many of the hiking trails on Cortes. This is an active farm & was once the residence of the farmers who ran ‘Lakeview Dairy’, the last raw milk in B.C.
Many beautiful trails on Cortes, Green Mountain, Easter Bluff, K’Was Park, Sisken Forest Park, Carrington Trails etc. The schedule of trails will be developed presented daily with your input. This year we want to spend another whole day in K’Was Park. Pot-luck dinners will be organized, using the farmhouse kitchen. Please check:

Departure Time 9:05 am sailing.  Be early because this is a busy sailing
Difficulty Easy to Moderate.
Cost Ferry costs plus shared fuel.  $35/night if you bring your own sleeping bag or linen; $50/night if Linnaea supplies the linens.

Notes: We will car-pool where possible. Everyone is responsible for own breakfast & lunch. Dinner teams to be organized.
