    Thank you for Pam co-leading with me and, Karen and Ling joined us on this trip.

    This popular in/out hike turned out to be an interesting loop hike for me.

    Pam and Karen did the in/out.   Ling and I completed the loop via Magnesia Meadows – this added 3.5km return.

    On this beautiful Thursday morning, we met 8:30 am at the tiny Lions Bay parking lot.  On a weekday early morning, there are still a few parking spots available when I arrived.  I think the cost of $24 is steep but worth for the 24 hours parking if there is a spot!

    Our small group maintained a steady pace and reached the summit of Mount Harvey under 4 hours.  We did not go fast and had a couple water/sweat breaks.   This was slower than an average NSH pace (I think!) as Mount Harvey could be rated as a B hike (In/Out) to be completed under 7 hours.

    For this time, here are the stats for In/Out hike as per Karen’s GPS:

    Distance: 12.2 km

    Ascent: 1,384 m

    Moving time: 6:01 hrs

    Total elapsed time: 7:46 hours

    The day was particularly clear and the views at the top of Mount Harvey were amazing.   We all leisurely enjoyed a well deserved lunch break.  Then, we departed separately back to the parking lot.

    Ling manually recorded the times and elevations that he is sharing with us here:

    “Here is my record of timing and elevation. Note that due to pressure change, the elevation reading may vary by 20 or 30 m within a day.
