We'll head out from downtown Vancouver by 7:30am, park at the Zopkios rest area, then start out along the likely well travelled trail towards Iago before heading off-trail up a steep forested ridge to the Zupjok summit. Potential to continue along the scenic ridge as far as Llama if the group is willing and there is enough daylight.

To Zupjok and back is about 10km and 600m elevation gain, say about 6hrs plus up to 5hrs driving. Be prepared for some route-finding (pretty straightforward) and trail-breaking (likely not too much, but will be on the steep section).

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.

Please sign up only if you are 100% committed.
