This very short trip takes you into the alpine area on the divide between the Squamish and Cheakamus Rivers. This open country stretches north-south for more than 30 km (19 mi). If your timing is right, the wildflowers in these alpine meadows will be spectacular. From the end of July through September the meadows bloom, but, as in every Eden, there are drawbacks: damp spots early in the season and insects to contend with later. If, of course, your eyes are set on higher things, an intermittent trail continues towards Brandywine Mountain, the approach to which is relatively clear. Remember, though, that you are letting yourself in for another 720 m (2360 ft) of climbing, with an extra 3 hours or so on the trail.
