I did an estimate, and this should be about 2.5 hours. Bring water and packed lunch! Please also note that it is a residential neighbourhood, and it can often be full of cars near the trailhead. Please arrive early to find parking, or organize group transportation among your friends. If you want a ride from Vancouver around Oak/Broadway (or wherever east of there too), I can pick you up. Please email VicePresident@Vanmyco.com if you need a ride, and we can see about organizing carpools. Laura VP
