There has been a small group that has booked with us for a hike up Mt.Horne/Westley Ridge which is located at the west end of Cameron lake. They are interested in the weekend of April 20. This day hike offers some amazing views of Cameron lake, Westley Ridge, Mt Klitsa. as well as the back of Mt. Cokely. Oh and can't forget to mention the spectacular views of the Alberni Valley as well as some of the other beautiful features in the area. Come join us for an amazing day!
DISTANCE from the parking lot to summit is approx: 4km, with 750m of elevation gain.
The early parts of the trail are fairly steep through the forests, there is a short jaunt along the railway and then up through second growth forest...and there are a few sections of easy scrambles higher up close to the summit. This trail is at relatively low elevation and being just after winter, the steeper parts of the trail through the forest may be a bit slippery when wet.
The trail is fairly well worn, and also flagged.
There is the option to make this into a loop, but typically returned via the same route as the loop route is less clearly marked.
