The A1s have a hike or snowshoe depending on the snow conditions on Wednesday October 28 in Bragg Creek. We will be hiking/snowshoeing the Telephone Trail loop. This is an 514m+17.5km trip. It will be possible to extend the trip via the Merlin View loop to 588m+22.3km. A further extension is possible via the Moose Loop Trail loop to 628m+27.2km. Our plan is to hike where we can and snowshoe where we cannot hike. This means you must bring both icers and snowshoes and be able to strap your snowshoes onto your back packs. If you choose to come on this trip without icers and cannot keep up with the hikers, you will be left behind. If you choose not to bring your snowshoes and cannot go further, you will also be left behind. Registration by Tuesday Oct 27 6 pm required.
