The fourth hike of the year saw students travel out to Cultus Lake in Chilliwack to hike the Watt Creek Horse trail. This trip was the first point to point hike that students have completed this year. While the original trip was planned for just over 8km, detours to Seven Sisters, as well as Teapot Hill, pushed the length of this trip to over 12km. While not as strenuous as earlier trips, students experienced how a trail through the forest can feel like another world, even though the trail itself never meanders farther than 1 km from the road at any given time. Highlights of the trip included Karol taking his first turn as sweep, pushing the pace of those at the back of the pack, as well as the difficult descent on the back side of Teapot Hill where students tested their mountaineering skills! Students discussed how to pack their packs for a daytrip, as well as what alterations need to be made for a multi day backpacking trip.
