I'd join you save the fact that I have no bike and have plans for that evening. I will see how things develop. Xore 00:18, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

If we can find somebody with a car, we would be able to do the hash in much less time. When do you need to be back in town for? - Elbie 01:51, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
No bike, no car, what about a kayak? Talk:2009-06-06_49_-123
Your Sunday expedition involves more hiking than I've ever heard of anyone in the lower mainland attempting. I really wish I was able to join you that day. There is some sort of unpaved road an unclassified 4wd road (worse than a logging road) that starts at the dam and follows the west side of the lake. That will get you to a point that leaves over 500m in elevation to climb with no trail. If the water is low (which I don't think it is), you may find yourself able to follow the unnamed creek south of the coordinates, or the larger Burwell Creek to the north. The coordinates actually lie on the peak of a steep ridgeline, which you will have to tackle no matter what angle you come from. I'm jealous! Juventas 18:09, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
Turns out that road was not for public access. Alas! - Elbie 01:42, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
If you're familiar with the area between Vancouver and Garibaldi Provincial Park, I'd love to hear more about the accessibility of it. In my mapbook it shows about half of it as being Seymour and Capilano Watershed "restricted access" area. It also shows a significant road network, with gates at only a few of the entrances. If the entire area is supposed to off-limits, I'm surprised you made it beyond the paved "Seymour Mainline", since it shows the restricted access area starting a few hundred meters before the dam.

That's... nuts. The distance to bike and hike doesn't seem too crazy, but the hike is, according to Google Maps, at least 400m of elevation gain over less than 2km through forested terrain with a grade of 40 to 80%. Best of luck? :S Yangman 07:56, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

The parts I managed to hike were really not that bad. The slope was a little less than going up Trail 3 from Wreck Beach. - Elbie 01:42, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Oh, good JOB! Elbie. Well hiked, well done respecting the watershed, a stellar example to all geohashers. It must have been hard to resist. Some day we'll get a good, legal hike-in geohash, and it will be in an odd-numbered month when I am home. Thank you for your contribution to making every graticule anywhere near Vancouver the best in the world. -Robyn 07:52, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
