Who's up for a rainy day leg-stretcher? From Horseshoe Bay, Eagle Bluffs is about 10km and 1000m elevation gain but depending on snow levels I'll probably make the boulder field the turnaround spot.

My main aim for this hike is to confirm the start/condition of the connector route to the Sunset trail. The sparsely flagged route used to veer off from the Baden Powell trail at about 550m, then roughly follow that line north for 2km to connect up with Sunset. So be prepared for a little bit of off-trail exploring though we won’t go very far along it this trip.

If anyone is up for trying out this connector route at a later date, or has recent beta, let me know!

I generally hike at the fast end of moderate, but prefer folks to stick together, so depending on the pace of the group, slower people may have to speed up a little and faster people will need to be able to keep themselves in check.

The forecast is showing rain. Please sign up only if you are 100% committed.
