Black Mountain to Eagleridge Bluff

CK Wright Photo Trips 4 Comments

On Sunday I explored the western side of Cypress Provincial Park, visiting Eagle Bluff, the two peaks of Black Mountain, and Cabin Lake. Ascending from the parking lot, the trail ascends steeply and the first views northwest across Howe Sound are visible. Below the north peak of Black Mountain is Cabin Lake, well snow covered and with long shadows in …

We started the hike at the ski hill parking lot and climbed up the Collins run before joining the trail further up. The fall colours were certainly abundant as we climbed to the south and north peaks of Mount Strachan. …
