I know the weather right now seems pretty miserable, but it's supposed to be better for Saturday night. Please make sure you bring appropriate clothing, and a good travel mug, to stock up on hot chocolate during the hike. The trail is washed out between Station C and Station D, so hikers will be traveling along the roadway between those two stations. See you tomorrow!
NiteHike is an annual adventure for registered Scouts and Guides that runs overnight in the Metro Vancouver - Pacific Spirit Regional Park in April.
Participants test their mettle on about 27 fun and skill-testing stations designed and run by Venturers, Rangers, Rovers and Pathfinders spread out on trails throughout the park.
Usually about 800-1000 youth and leaders participate in the event, organized into teams of 4 to 7 people.
The hike runs all night and teams have to be prepared to deal with any weather conditions.
Participants should bring water, a cup and a snack. Hot chocolate and hot dogs are available at some stations on the hike. (see participant info section for more details)
