Weather permitting, this coming Saturday, June 17, we plan to hike Whistler Canyon trail which some of you have heard about. The trailhead is located 3 miles south of Oroville, turn east/left of Hwy. 97.
If you are interested in joining us, here are some details:
We plan to leave from the trailhead parking lot promptly at 9:30 AM
Traveling time to trailhead from Anarchist Mtn. residences (including standard customs clearance) – approximately 45 minutes
Moderate hike with elevation gain, steady uphill, approximately 2 hours one way.
Bring usual hiking gear including boots, water, hat, sunscreen, bug spray, hiking poles if you use them. Recommend long pants and long sleeves.
We will go to the view point on the Black Diamond Trail. Below is a photo taken form this viewpoint, which looks straight north over Oroville and the length of Osoyoos Lake.
We will linger at the view point long enough so that participants can enjoy the view, have a snack etc.
A brochure providing some information on this trail is included in the pdf file attached
After the hike, we plan to stop for a meal or refreshments in an Oroville establishment.
