Eagle Bluffs 19/07/08

Kamen on the Eagle Bluffs trail:
“This hike was originally set up by Paul Taylor but he had to drop out because of work commitments. Three of us met at Park Royal to drive to the trailhead about 10 minutes away by car in a quiet cul-de-sac in West Vancouver. After the initial (and fairly easy) stage of the trail, the trail started climbing steeply and didn’t relent until we got to the top. The trail was fairly well-marked but quite challenging and quite a few times we had to resort to using all fours to climb some of the more rugged sections. About 2/3 of the way up, we encountered a rocky section that we had to scramble over. After a short pause on the rock field, we pushed on up to the top. We were greeted with an amazing bird’s eye view of Bowen Island, the Lower Mainland and the Sunshine Coast. The sun hid behind the clouds while we were at the top which was actually a relief. There were quite a few other people at the top who had hiked there from Black Mountain. After about an hour, we gingerly picked our way down which took almost as long as the ascent. We encountered two parties on their way up while we were hiking down; they were the only other people we encountered on the hike all day. All in all, a beautiful day for a hike with some great hiking partners.”
