Canmore Bike and Hike July 2019
When: Friday, 05-Jul-2019
Where: 201-302 Old Canmore Road, Canmore, AB
When: July 5-7
Where: Canmore Downtown Hostel 201-302 Old Canmore Road Canmore. A brand new hostel right beside The Grizzly Paw Brewing Company!! I have booked two dorm rooms with private bathrooms for 12 riders to enjoy an awesome weekend in the mountains. We will meet at the Hostel by 8:30pm to discuss weekend plans. Check-in is 4:00pm.
Saturday – We will make our way to Vermillion Lakes Rd in Banff to begin our ride. An 83k out and back ride along the Bow Valley Parkway all the way to the Continental Divide along Highway 93. Lunch will be at Vermillion Pass BC before returning the same way we came. This is an unsupported ride, so make sure you have all you need in case of minor bike issues. Drivers will need Park Passes
Sunday – Let’s stretch our legs with a moderate level hike to Chester Lake. Chester Lake is a 9.3k 320m elevation beautiful hike complete with a stunning alpine meadow and glistening lake nestled among towering peaks. The first third of the trail is the steepest, with nice views back through Burstall Pass. The trail then opens into a small clearing, and the rest is easy going.
Maximum Participants: 11 (plus leader = 12)
Be aware that weather or trail closers may require us to make last minute changes. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that all will go as planned!
Food: It is recommended that you have supper before arriving to the hostel Friday night. You will need to plan for two breakfasts, two packed lunches and snacks for the trail/ride and supper on Saturday night at the hostel, unless we decide to out!
