Burke Mountain on New Year’s Eve

Decided to go up the Coquitlam Lakeview trail on Burke Mountain today. It was a beautiful sunny day, but pretty cool. We put on our micro spikes due to icy trail conditions and we encountered fresh snow about half way up.

Today’s stats were:

Distance: 11.4 km (return)
Low point: 330 m
High point: 908 m
Elevation gain: 578 m
Total Elevation gain: 695 m
Trailhead: 49° 18’ 49” by  122° 44’ 57.3” (Google Map)

Here’s the route…

Here is the viewpoint…

Before heading out on your hike, make sure you are well prepared. This means, having the TEN ESSENTIALS. It is also important to leave a trip plan (route details and estimated return time) with someone you trust.

Bring your smartphone, fully charged and put it in airplane mode while hiking. I always bring back-up battery packs for extra piece of mind. It is highly recommended that you bring a GPS device; I use my smartphone with a GPS app (Backcountry Navigator). The GPS will work in airplane mode. Learn how to use it before your hike.

For anyone new to hiking, there is a rule to which hikers follow; it is called “Leave No Trace” or LNT. The concept is generally to pack out what you pack in and respect nature, so all future visitors can enjoy what you have enjoyed.
