Moderate day hike to Mount Parke on Mayne Island with spring birds and flowers and views. Pack lunch and water, wear good boots or hiking shoes and come prepared for all weather. Much of this hike is on forest trails and roads but there is an open exposed ridge section and a short rough trail portion through the woods. Meet on the Gulf Islands ferry departing 0835 from Tsawwassen terminal. Take bus #620 from Bridgeport Canada Line station or Ladner Exchange; for carpooling, please contact the leader by Thursday evening. Please note that foot passengers must be at the terminal ten minutes before departure. The return ferry leaves Mayne at 1705 and returns to Tsawwassen at 1835. Adult fare is currently $19.80 from Tsawwassen and $10.20 for the return. Difficulty level C6. Contact Bill Kinkaid.
