Contact Info norris.weimer@ualberta.ca or 3710  Please contact the coordinator by Monday night.
Description Manzanita Bluff is an amazing viewpoint toward the north end of Discovery Passage.  It’s quite a long drive on logging roads and about 250m uphill without a trail, but the view is worth it.  The best route is through relatively open forest with some mature Douglas fir.  We will make the side trip to Darkwater Lake after the hike and swimming is an option.  About 5.6 km; 4¾ hours.
Meeting Place Heriot Bay store parking lot.  We will drive out in a group.  All- or four-wheel drive vehicles with some clearance are recommended for the drive.
Departure Time 9:00
Difficulty
Moderate, quite short but no trail.
Costs None
Trip limits None
Dogs? No.
Notes: Bring lunch, poles if you use them, bathing suit if you want to swim  This is a trip better done in good weather and would be postponed if the forecast is poor.
