Nanaimo and Area Land Trust Leads Nanaimo Hikes

NALT Volunteers Invite You to
'Take a Hike' This Saturday

Nanaimo and area Land Trust Volunteers will lead a series of hikes this Saturday along Nanaimo trails.

The hikes begin at the Millstone River Estuary under the Pearson Bridge in Maffeo Sutton Park 9:00 a.m. Stage two will begin at 10:30 a.m. at Buttertubs Marsh at the end of Buttertubs Drive (north side).

If the weather permits there will be a hike to the top of Mt. Benson leaving from Witchcraft Lake at 11:30 am. If you are going on this hike, be sure to take snowshoes and crampons. If it proves too hazardous this hike could be cancelled.

There will be another tour of Mt. Benson starting at 12:00 noon from the west parking lot at Westwood Lake. This tour will cover the ridges above Westwood Lake. You won't believe you are moments away from the hustle and bustle of modern Nanaimo!

There will be shuttle services available to transport hikers between the different hikes. The cost for the hikes are $5 to $10 per hike or $15 for the day.

For more information or to register call the NALT at 250-714-1990.
