Required Fitness Level

Post-bear spray demo @ Kalamoir. One of my favourites, but with a twist. ;)

We'll start with my typical -- Reservoir Rd -> Rock Candy -> JabbaRocky -> City on the Edge of Forever (via Daze of Roses) -> Lake Loop around the north end of the reservoir.

At this point I'm going to deviate and head up Rooster Tree then use Swamp Donkey to get back to Cattywumps and thence to Mr. Toads to climb up the hill to the Purple trail crossing the summit.

From the south end of the summit we'll use the Orange trail + some emergency access routes to get to Slik 50 and back to the cars.

Trail Description

This full perimeter loop begins with a quick right-turn to ascend to the top of the popular eastern summit, which over looks the city. Then, after a brief descent into the neck of the valley, follow a winding trail northward around the brim of the lake to the west side, past marshlands featuring numerous bullrushes. Approximately at the mid-point of the west side of the lake, turn right and head up the side of McDougall Rim (Sweet St marker). Continue to an incredible rock archway that you duck under (City on the Edge of Forever/Cave) to progress to the true summit. Meander down the mountain, keeping right at all forks to pass by a giant rock monolith and arrive at the trailhead.
