Lost, Found & Info

So far this season has been good for lost & found items – not a lot reported or turned in, with some successful reunions already to date.

A phone was reported lost near Cruikshank Canyon lookout a few days ago – please contact if found , to reunite with its owner.

Number one found item this year is sunglasses – we have several pairs, including a pair of prescription lenses in metal frames, left on the camp registration box a couple of days ago. Other items include several odd gloves, including a right-hand black Thinsulate – probably from the winter; a small key (perhaps to a lock); and a couple items of kids clothing – a child’s black Nike hoodie, again from just a couple of days ago,  and girl’s blue tye-dye hoodie. Please contact us at to reclaim any items.

Trails & campsites in the Paradise Meadows & Forbidden Plateau area are all reported in great condition. Several recent threads on Club Tread are discussing areas of Strathcona Park: Mt JutlandKwai Lake, Mt Albert Edward, and the Bedwell area. 

A report was forwarded by Gerry Roberts, volunteer host at Buttle Lake Info Hut:  “On the east side of Buttle Lake trails, there are snow patches at about 1500 m
and a lot more snow than usual at higher elevations. Possibly because last
summer’s snow did not melt before it was covered with new snow. The route
through Augerpoint to Albert Edward is in good condition.”
