Saskatoon Mountain Loop

Join us for a day hike on Saskatoon Mountain. I have scheduled this again as I hiked Sasky for the first time as a loop for Hike Your Pass Off and everyone who hiked that day with me really enjoyed it. The loop involves going up the same way to the summit as normal but descending a much nicer trail on the backside down to a quad trail for a short period of time and then returning to Miner's Path on some of Leg 7 of the Sinister course. This loops works out to 10km total and 515m of gain (all of which occurs in the first 3.5km which makes the rest easy-peasy).
