Cape Fife hike this Sunday

  • Sep. 1, 2004 10:00 a.m.

Submitted by the Sierra Club Haida Gwaii–The Sierra Club Haida Gwaii group will be finalizing on the Labour Day weekend it’s fifth and final outing into the Cape Fife trail. This summer, the group has planned five hikes in ecologically important and sensitive areas throughout the islands. One of our key successes in the past years was strengthening our partnership with like-minded organizations locally. This year our networking included co-presenting hikes with the Tlell Watershed Society (tlellwatershed.org) and the Friends of the Yakoun, and co-promotion of the series with the Queen Charlotte Visitor Information Centre (qcinfo.com).
The Cape fife is a trail that meanders through the stunted forests and around the bogs and fens of Naikoon Park to reach the sandy northeast coast. The walk to Cape Fife is 10 km, mostly flat and two options will be available; for the more adventurous, we will continue to Rose Spit for overnight, while the second group return to the trailhead the same day (8hrs)
This hike meets Sunday, September 5 at the Masset Recreation Centre for carpooling to the Cape Fife trailhead at the end of Tow Hill Road. David Loewen from Masset will be your guide and lead you on this hike. For departure from the south and for further details and to register on this coming hike, contact the QC Visitor Info Centre at 250-559-8316 or info@qcinfo.com
