  1. Hi,

    I am trying to plan my end to end hikes for 2013. Could you please provide me with information on cost and when the two day end to end hike may happen in the Fall? This is because your three day hike conflicts with other end to end hikes and I would like to do it all this year.

    Thanks, Wenona Horton

    1. Yes, the experienced hike leaders sort of expect you have access to the BTC maps. Primrose itself is the town at the intersection of Hwy.10 and Hwy.89. If you are asking about the April 27th hike, you can get to the parking lot mentioned by going north of Primrose on the Prince of Wales road to 5th Sideroad, turning right and taking the next right to go south on Centre Road. If still in doubt, please call one of the hike leaders.
