Finally busted my chief cherry. Don't think I need to throw up any pics as I'm sure you've all done it. Very pretty. Did the farther peak (both the sketchy latter and the proper chained 2nd peak)

Was fun. But with le gf I wasn't rushing to the top

Been trying to do a hike every week this spring/summer too.

I've been getting lower back soreness (muscle tightness) whenever I have to ascend or climb steps. This has made it quite painful/tiring when doing hikes. Any suggestions on how to counteract this? I think it may have something to do with how I'm climbing those stairs. Felt it really bad the entire way up the grind today.

That is crazy. 10m away? and it was Grizzly and not a black bear? No bear spray?

It could have been death for you. I'm serious. Good thing no incident occurred. Definitely be careful

1. foam roller
2. hanging on a chin up bar stretch
3. weight lifting belts
4. and try to consider back muscle endurance work outs in the future when the pain is gone
5. hiking cane/ sticks

320icar ... thanks for the great pics.

I spend most of the year marathon training and I love hiking in the summer. Somehow I had never done the Chief so my GF and I went yesterday. I ran 15 km in the AM so we didn't actually start until shortly after noon. We went to the second peak and looped back down the route that most people take when they go straight to the third peak.

Boy was it busy but what the heck did I expect on a 25 degree Saturday in July in the afternoon.

Hmmmm ... sounds like a black bear to me. There is distinct difference between a black bear and a brown bear or Grizzly.

Your point is right though ... people keep telling me to carry bear spray and I keep forgetting to get some. I have run into a couple of meandering black bears over the year and they weren't bothered by me but the circumstances could have been very different.

Hot tip of the day : bear spray.

Thanks, the issue is it happens when I am doing the hike. I do foam rolling after every workout but it hasn't helped during the hike. I do deadlifts in the gym too.

i see, then my last suggestion is to go to the doctors or a podiatrist and get assessed if you need custom orthotics

according to the link below, It can be done in a day. but It would be nice to enjoy the sunrise.

Ministry of Environment - Golden Ears Provincial Park - Hiking Trails

on another note: I cant find anyone this sunday to do an early hike with me.
Dog mountain, Fairly easy hike, 2 hours in total (vice versa). starts in mount seymour. Leave at 4am to catch the sunrise.


Just confirmed, im doing Lion's binkert trail on June 28th with 2 other bromies. If anyone wanna come

Do you use trekking poles at all? If you don't, you should definitely try them out. I fell in love with them after trying them out, and now I wouldn't be caught dead without them on a hike.

They transfer so much of the workload away from your legs, knees, and back to your arms and shoulders. I'd even go as far as making the claim that they enable me to last easily 2x as long on a hike than without, and I get a far more balanced workout to boot.

(Now, if I could only find the same magic bullet that would make me last 2x as long in this other kind of activity that I regularly engage in... that would be golden. )

MEC has a good selection of these, but I'm sure your local fav outdoors shop would also be a good source.

I won't pretend to be an expert on it, but from my research, it seems to me that a correct pole height is essential, and it varies a bit depending on the type of terrain you are hiking. Because of this, I opted for a height adjustable pole instead of a fixed height pole.

There are at least a few companies that makes trekking poles, and they all seem pretty decent. Personally, I went with an aluminum Black Diamond pole because I prefer its snap latch type of height adjustment instead of the twist lock kind. But that may or may not be personal preference.

One very interesting aspect that I found is, it takes some practice to get used to having a hiking pole(s). If you don't get the technique right, it feels awkward using them, and you won't like them at all. But once you are used to it, they just feel like extensions to your arms and legs, and you walk / hike / trek with them like everything is second nature. In some ways, it's kind of like learning how to walk all over again. You can talk about gait, pole placement, moving matter, etc. for as long as you want, but ultimately, I'd say you just need to build up the motor program much like how people learn to walk. And then you just do it without thinking.

I use poles if it's more than a 4-5h hike. especially if you have a pack, it's a must
