Hike up St Marks Summit Sun, May 24

Join us for a hike up St. Marks Summit!  St. Marks Summit is part of the Howe Sound Crest that spans over 30km from Cypress to Porteau Cove and this section of the trail that St. Mark’s Summit is on starts from Cypress Mountain which is the first mountain along this route.  It takes about 2 hours for the average hiker to reach St. Marks Summit and the views are fantastic – The cliffs below you are frighteningly vertical (you do not have to look down if you are scared of heights!), making the views fantastically majestic.  We’ll carpool at the meet up location described below and drive up to the Cypress Mountain Parking lot where the trail starts.

When: Sunday, May 24 (9:00am-4:00pm)

Meet-up Location: Vancouver Tourism Info Centre at 9:00am (Sharp)

(Corner of West Cordova Street and Burrard Street)

What to bring: Proper footwear (as the trail is steep in parts), lunch, camera, sunscreen, snacks, camera, min 1.5L water, warm and weatherproof jacket, and cash. The weather can change quickly – even if the weather is sunny and warm in Vancouver, it can be cool and windy at the top of the Mountain, so please prepare accordingly.  We are not stopping for food along the way and Mokuyokai reserves the right to turn away unprepared participants.

Difficulty Level: Intermediate/Difficult – Please note that there are a few steep slopes along the way although we believe these slopes are very manageable by most participants.  We also may encounter muddy areas and some snow patches towards the peak.  You should wear shoes with good traction – Running shoes are fine but hiking boots are ideal.

Hike details: http://vancouverhiatus.com/hiking/st-marks-summit.html

Hike Length: 11km Roundtrip /5-6 hours.

Cost(s): Pay your driver $5.00 for gas and their time.

Mokuyokai Fees: Mokuyokai Members – Free. Non-Members – $5.00

RSVP to Nobu (hike@mokuyokai.bc.ca) by Thurs., May 21st. Please indicate:

  • Are you a Mokuyokai member?
  • Can you drive or do you need a lift?
  • Your phone number
  • Your emergency contact: name and phone number

Maximum number of participants: 20

Car Pooling: We will arrange car-pooling from the Vancouver Tourism Info Centre.  It works on a first come, first serve basis (i.e. if someone RSVPs and can drive 3 people, the first three people who signed up get a lift.).  Please give your driver a minimum of $5.00 for gas and their time (you can decide a fair amount with your driver.).  Drivers are usually in short supply, so if you can drive, it is appreciated.

Cancellations: Please try to give Mokuyokai as much time as possible if you need to cancel. Last minute cancellations cause issues with carpooling.

*Important Notes*

This event is weather dependent.  If there is heavy rain, it will be cancelled. If the event is cancelled, an email will go out to participants the night before the event.

Most of our participants have lived or traveled in Japan at some point in their lives. We also have Japanese-only table and one English-only table if you want to practice your language skills (the rest of the tables are whatever the participants are speaking). So if you want to network, share experiences about Japan, learn more about Mokuyokai or just meet like minded people, then don’t miss this event! The atmosphere is casual and feel free to invite a friend. Don’t forget your ID and please remember to tip your server.
