Challenging hike with beautiful views!
There are couple different routes up Monashka. Our route goes up the long way around past the former beaver pond and descends the "shortcut" trail. Sections of the trail can be very muddy! From the top enjoy the beautiful views of spruce island and the mainland on clear days. This trail has steep sections, so know your limits and be prepared!
The Cirunertulik Cache is a small/medium black pelican case with a clear lid. Trade items, pencil and log book can be found inside. The cache is near the junction of the shortcut trail and long trail to Monashka Mountain.
