Description We are planning on two travel days and four nights camping in Cathedral Lakes Provincial Park.  Day 1: travel to Keremos and spend the night in local accommodation.  Day 2 (Thursday): travel up the mountain to the Park in the Lodge “unimog” on the 10:00 departure.  Set up camp in either the Quiniscoe Lake campground (5 minute walk) or the Lake of the Woods campground (25 minute walk).  Begin day-hiking and continue through Sunday.  There are at least 12 trails in the core area ranging from easy to strenuous. The  variety of lakes and mountain scenery is exceptional.  Other activities such as swimming and fishing are also available.  For more info: http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/explore/parkpgs/cathedral/cathedral_core_area_map.pdf   and    http://cathedrallakes.ca/park/
On Day 6 (Monday) we will descend the mountain on the “unimog” and return to Quadra.

Departure Time At your convenience
Difficulty Easy to strenuous.  The group may break into subgroups depending on interests.
Cost Transportation costs (ferries, fuel)  The cost of the ride up the mountain is $105/person round trip.  This is non-refundable and must be paid at time of booking.  Accommodation costs for the first night in Keremos and campsite costs ($10/person/night) at the park, paid in advance as a permit.
Trip limits Eight people; maximum of six tents as we cannot reserve camping spots and we would like to be close together.
Dogs? Not allowed in the park.
Notes: There will not be any group bookings for this trip.  Everyone is responsible for their own reservations in Keremos, on the “unimog” through the Cathedral Parks Lodge (http://cathedrallakes.ca/camper-services/), and the campsite (at the bottom of the following link http://cathedrallakes.ca/park/).  Full camping gear and food is required, but only needs to be carried to the campsite.  Water must be treated.  The camping area is at 2,000 metres, so be prepared far a variety of mountain conditions.
