It's the most delicious time of year!
Hike through the Callaghan Valley to Journeyman Lodge picking fresh huckleberries along the way. Once you arrive at Journeyman Lodge, you will deliver your cup of berries to our Lodge Chef who will prepare your huckleberry pancakes. There's nothing more satisfying - and tasty - than eating the (literal) fruits of your labour.
- 8:00am suggested arrival at the Callaghan Lake parking area and trailhead
- Please allow for a minimum 2 hr hike into Journeyman Lodge. Be sure to pick a cup of berries along the way so you can deliver them to our Lodge Chef for the huckleberry pancakes
- 9:00am-Noon Pancake Brunch and social in the lodge dining room
Don't forget it's a wee bit different getting to Journeyman Lodge in the summer…
Self-Drive and Hike:
Follow the Callaghan Lake Forest Service Road to Callaghan Lake. It is about 8.5km from the Alexander Falls base to Callaghan Lake on a rough road and it takes about 20 – 35 minutes. We recommend using a vehicle with good clearance (4WD preferred). The trail to the lodge begins about 250m before you reach the lake – look for the sign on your left. There is a small clearing just off the road – park here. From here, the hike is 4.5 km and will take between 1.5 – 2 hours depending on your ability and fitness level.
- Stay home if you have any symptoms, however mild, and get tested if your symptoms are consistent with COVID-19.
- Practice physical distancing.
- Mask wearing is required in indoor public spaces.
- Wash your hands often.
