Mount Strachan is on the North Shore in Cypress Provincial Park. Decided to do a shortish hike. Parked and headed off on the Howe Sound Crest Trail, the same trail you start on to go to Unnecessary Mountain.
We veered off the trail onto the trail through a gully towards Mount Strachan. It became very steep, very quickly and was less a hike than a scramble with some boulder hopping. We got to the saddled between Mount Strachan North Peak and South Peak. We went up both! Unfortunately for us, despite it being a beautiful day, there was a fog so we couldn’t see any views (so took very few photos)
After a lunch (sandwich and grapes) we found our way to the ski run and looped down that way, rather than go the steep trail we had just come up. Once we got to the parking lot, we found some blueberry bushes and picked some. yum!!
Really enjoyed being out on this mountain.
The stats for this hike: We did 10kms and it was a 750 meters elevation gain
