On October 20, 2018, over 20 members of the CPABC Tri-Cities Chapter tackled the Coquitlam Crunch Trail. The Crunch is an urban trail and Coquitlam’s version of the Grind. This moderate intensity trail is approximately 4.5 km round trip to the top of Westwood Plateau for an elevation gain of 244 metres.
Along the trail, which is located under power lines, hikers enjoyed views of the city. Some even spotted wildlife in the surrounding bushes. While bear sightings have been reported in the past, luckily, none were noticed today.
After finishing the Crunch, hikers headed over to the Mariner Brewing Company on Landsdowne Drive where the rest of the group waited patiently. It’s a craft brewery featuring a Northeast IPA that’s known for its bright, tropical and juicy flavours.
This ice cold beverage was an ideal reward for all those who hiked the Crunch earlier in the day.
The CPABC Tri-Cities Chapter has many more PD, social and student events planned. Check the chapter email or online newsletter/blog for upcoming events.
And contact the chapter chair if you would like to volunteer for any of these events.
