Murray Cabin Snowshoe – January 28th, 2023
January 28 @ 6:30 am - 7:00 pm$60.00
The Murray/Yellowhawk trail has to be one of our favourite summer hiking destinations and so not surprisingly the winter route is one of our most loved snowshoes. This adventure will take you to the Cariboos, just outside of Wells, BC. This snowshoe starts off with a short but steep incline followed by a more relaxed, gradual climb. This trail has lots of flat breaks through meadows & beautiful scenery all around. The goal for the day is to reach the saddle that holds the tiny backcountry cabin, Murray Cabin. We will stoke the fire at the cabin, have lunch, warm beverages and relax before our journey back to the trail head. This adventure is roughly 9km total, along an in & out trail, gaining 390 metres of elevation.
Activity Level/Rating – Moderate, some challenging snowshoe terrain which you will be guided through, lots of flat sections and short steep sections. Will be a longer day so experience snowshoeing through deep powder is recommended.
Meeting – Meeting at Parkwood mall out front the second cup at 6:30am, hitting the road by 6:45am. We will be carpooling from this location. carpool fee to be given to driver is $20 per guest. It is roughly a two hour drive to trail head. Goal is to be back in PG by around 6pm, depending on trail condition, group pace & how long we wander & rest for.
