What to Bring
Please be prepared in what you need to bring with you taking into consideration which route you are doing and how long you will be on the mountain. Some things to consider are:
· Very warm down or fleece jacket
· Rain proof wear
· Good hiking boots and gators
· Hiking poles are recommended
· Lots of water. Those that are doing the Summit and Monument should bring at least 3 litres of water. The First Sub Peak route requires between 2 litres and the View Point requires about 1 litre.
· Lots of food!! Be sure you bring enough to sustain yourself on your journey. You should consider more than you may normally eat for lunch, ie two sandwiches, energy bars, veggies, trail mix, etc.

Summit/Monument and First Sub Peak – Hikers will leave at 6:00am

After The Trek
There will also be a post hike gathering at the Valemount Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 266, located at 970 Main Street between 7:30-8pm. This is a great opportunity for everyone to come out and share their experience and photos. A small menu will be available. We understand you may be tired after your long hike, please let us know if you will be attending the gathering.
The cell service coverage is quite good but there may be some spots in the lower treed section where you may not find good service but once you are near the tree line coverage should be good. We encourage you to bring your phone and camera to take photos and document your trek so that we may share them on our social media sites. Please use #terryfoxtrektrek or email your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org
