Eleven people hiked a portion of the historic Hudson Bay Brigade Trail from Hope to Jacobson Lake last weekend. Hope Mountain Centre organized the hike and supplied the leaders.

Participants were from the Lower Mainland and included two retired history teachers that challenged themselves in getting over the formidable Cascade Mountains with heavy packs on their backs.

Two local Princetonites, Trina Adams and Sandy Yee hiked all the way from Lodestone Lake to Hope completing the entire trail in only 5 days.
