Aug 20, Sunday; Joint CVN/SWI Hike to McKenzie Meadows
An easy, 3 km. one-way hike from the trailhead into McKenzie and Douglas Lakes, and on to McKenzie Meadows, with biologist Loys Maingon. The trailhead starts halfway up Mt. Washington, not at Paradise Meadows, so meeting at the car pool area is required. 4×4 are necessary for logging road access from the Ramparts Chain-up. Meet at the parking area on Mt. Washington Parkway, just off the Inland Highway ( Hwy 19) to car pool.
McKenzie Meadows is located in the south-eastern corner of Forbidden Plateau. A map is available here: http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/explore/parkpgs/strath/strath_forbidden_area.pdf
