Our easy hikes take place on Tuesdays and Saturdays. They range from 2 1/2 to 4 hours and from 5 to 8 kms. There are more hills on these hikes than on leisure hikes, and the terrain may be more rugged underfoot.
What do I need to get started?
Our club requires all hikers to have sturdy footwear (preferably hiking shoes) as we hike on some unsteady terrain, clothing appropriate to the weather, water, and a snack/lunch. During bug season, most of our members carry bug spray and/or bug clothing. A sun hat is recommended. Lots of us also carry a bear bell, a hiking stick(s), a knife, a first aid kit, a whistle, sunscreen and a flashlight. If you have any questions about a specific hike, check the Club Calendar for the hike leader and give them a call.
Our hike leaders have the right to refuse to take someone who is unprepared for the planned hike or if the hike is unsuitable for that person.
We allow a non member a maximum of five "trial" hikes. Membership costs $25.00 per year or $30.00 for a family.
