SUMMARY: There is a marked trail in the summer. In winter, the trail to Hollyburn is a popular snowshoe. The route past Hollyburn to Strachan is rarely visited in winter; it is steep and requires route-finding skills and ability to recognize avalanche terrain. Cumulative elevation gain for the loop is 960.create

More backcountry 101 shoeing down the backside of Hollyburn to traverse over to Strachan. There was lots of fresh powder to play in, but low cloud and snow cut our visibility to about 200-250m.
Although the avalanche conditions were LOW.... I will not go into too much detail, as this is not something I would recommend to the average snowshoe trek, we had a highly experienced group leader to guide and teach us, there were signs everywhere warning of dangerous areas and to be vigilant of the conditions.
So enjoy the photos and you never know, I might see just you on the trails!
If you like to play outside, I am also a co-organizer of a local Meetup. Check us out at: Maple Ridge Hiking Group
