This three-day adventure will be my families second mountain adventure. The plan is to camp for two nights at Arnica Lake. The second day is an optional adventure using an off-trail route along the north-east portion of Phillips Ridge to Mount Phillips.
Day 1 (B1p1) - ascent to Arnica lake from Westmin-Strathcona Parking lot (~850 m elevation gain and 7 km)
Day 2 (B2p2) - hike to Mount Philips (for round trip ~850 m elevation gain and 10km)
Day 3 - Descend to parking lot
The trail to Arnica lake is an official trail that sees thousands of visitors every year. It's easy switchbacks provide easy access to Arnica Lake. Participants may choose to join Matthew on his trip to Mount Philips or make their own adventure for a day trip along the western rib of Phillips Ridge.
