Grey Rock Lookout 24/05/08

Christian at the Grey Rock Lookout:
“The 6 of us entered the trailhead at 7:15pm. This old Baden-Powell route was quite wide at the start. Lots of roots and ruts to step over. No snow, no mud. We separated into groups of two, as we went up and down various twisty and steep trail sections. Conversation was light and spirited. We kept changing conversation partners along route. We noticed all the creek crossings had been improved with new bridges. We reached Grey rock by 8pm, and looked out over Deep Cove, Poco and Burnaby. We could see all the tall Burnaby towers far away in the distance. Unfortunately, there were trees blocking the views East and North of us. We could not see the fabled Twin islands I was hoping to point out. We walked out before dark, and half of us went to the Raven pub for a pint and a meal. A few good laughs to end a nice evening. Trail was steeper than expected. Overall a worthy trail rain or shine for a good light workout.”
