A friend and I (and our dogs) hiked up Mt. Lorne on September 1. It took us five hours to get from the highway parking area to Mt. Lorne’s false summit – a perfect place to have lunch. We then turned around and headed back down, avoiding the craggy, rocky ridge that leads to the true summit. The rocky ridge across the summit is not suitable for my elderly dog, I’m not sure it is suitable for me either, with lots of rock scrambling and the need to use your hands, as well as your feet to move onward and upward. Maybe next summer?
At our highest point we had hiked up 1129 metres, providing an invigorating workout and spectacular views!
