Where? Quarry Rock Trail at Deep Cove in North Vancouver. We will meet up by the playground at 11 AM sharp! Arrive earlier to find parking. Bus 212 from Phibbs or 211 from Vancouver go directly to Deep Cove.
How Much? $15 per person, includes samples and drinks (but bring your own water!)
We will meet up at 11 AM, and then hike up to Quarry Rock which has a great view of the Deep Cove harbour. We will then have a chocolate tasting at the peak as we enjoy the beautiful view. The tasting will include a surprise mix of bean to bar chocolate, cacao juice, and iced chocolate! We will taste, analyze the flavours, and discuss the information behind each bar. Once we are done, we will head back down to where we started.
The entire hike back and forth including the tasting should take 3 hours, but stay flexible in case it goes longer due to a busy trail or people taking their time. You have the option to go on your own after the tasting, and stay up longer or leave earlier if you wish!
What to bring: Appropriate hiking gear (shorts, tshirt, running shoes (no flip flops), water, and sunscreen). Here is more information on the Quarry Rock Trail https://www.vancouvertrails.com/trails/quarry-rock/ You are responsible for yourself and any guests. Ensure you are in good physical health! I take no responsibility for any injury whatsoever. The hike is not a difficult hike, but you will sweat. We will go at a moderate paste suitable for everyone.
