Description: This trail begins with the infamous Incline Trail, which really does live up to its name.  It's a 1km hill with almost 200m elevation gain.  Once we reach the top, we'll take the Fire Access Trail and loop back on Whisky West, which travels through the edge of UBC Research Forest.  We'll eventually arrive back at the Mike Lake Parking Lot.
What to bring: Please dress in layers, for the weather, wear comfortable hiking shoes and bring a water bottle and a snack.  If it snows, micro-spikes are recommended to reduce slipping!

Unfortunately, because this trail travels through a portion of UBC Research Forest, dogs are not permitted.

Please note that unless indicated, all MGW events are child-free.  The purpose of this is so that we can focus on being us, without the stress or distractions that come from little people.  If this weekday event doesn't work with your childcare schedule please know that we will be hosting events on weekends and evenings as well.  Thanks for your cooperation!
