Was up here a few months ago, ended up bushwacking through heavy snow and a whiteout. Hoping for views this time!

There's a bit of uphill logging road walking, then the trail starts out fairly level to McKay lake before climbing steeply up the col between St Benedict and McKay to the summit which has tremendous views of Judge Howay and Robbie Reid. If the group is willing, we could bushwack over to the forested McKay Peak just for fun on the way down. Expect snow past the lake.

15km round-trip, 1050m elevation gain, about 7 hours of hiking. Plan is to leave downtown Vancouver by 8:30am, with potential carpooling stops along the way (eg Rupert Station, Mary Hill bypass), then hike up usual trail.

People interested in talking about overnight winter trips are especially welcome!
