Tuesday, October 14 2014

On Saturday, October 18, rain or shine, GaLTT will guide another walk from one end of Gabriola to the other - this time starting at Silva Bay and ending in Descanso Bay at the Skol Pub. Gertie will be at the Skol to drive us back to our cars in Silva Bay. 

The walk will be in three sections allowing participants to choose a shorter walk if they wish, and GaLTT will provide van services between these transfer points. We will use public trails for as much of the trek as possible, obtaining permission where we need it to cross private land. Come and explore our beautiful trails with us and see Gabriola from a different perspective.

Our schedule will be roughly: Leave Silva Bay at 10:00 a.m; Arrive Tait Road about two hours later, at noon; Leave Tait Road, near North Road, at roughly 12:10 p.m., to and through 707 Acre Park. This leg includes a break to eat our picnic lunches; Arrive Tin Can Alley about two hours later; Leave Tin Can Alley at North Road at roughly 2:20 p.m., walking via Cox and Descanso Bay Parks to the Skol Pub; Arrive Skol Pub at roughly 3:50 p.m.

The GERTIE bus will make two runs back to Silva Bay from the Skol Pub, leaving at 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.
