June 5th Saturday – The Eye of the Needle is an amazing place in the wilds of the Walton Glen Canyon. We will be going in from Dustan Brook which is on the Little Salmon River. I would qualify this hike as strenuous, but spectacular. Water shoes are a must, as we will be crossing the river numerous times. There will be some bouldering as well as we go up Walton Brook to the “Eye”. Not overly long at perhaps 10Kms, but terrain will be difficult in places.- Meet at Centennial Park by dog park at 8:30 am. Adair’s Lodge at 9:45. Contact Paul at 588-3034
