Walkers meet On Wednesdays at Metro parking lot to car pool (unless noted otherwise).

Please note car pool times for each event.

For carpooling the leader will meet participants in the N. E. corner of the Metro parking lot in Collingwood. If the weather conditions are unfavourable the decision on whether or not to continue with the outing will be made by those who show up. If cancelled those showing up may wish to adjourn to a local café to socialize and enjoy a coffee.

Walks start at 10:30 am at Trailhead, unless stated otherwise, and will last about 2 hrs.

Come prepared with lunch, a beverage, suitable clothing, sturdy footwear and, if possible, a cell phone.

Please no pets.

All participants must sign the waiver before the activity. Each leader will have a waiver form with them.
Any questions should be directed to the leader of each walk. If you need more details on how to get to the hiking location please phone the hike leader. Bring a friend to encourage new memberships!

Hike Information (NEW)

Please note that hike information does not include degree of difficulty or directions. These will be emailed each week after the leader has pre-hiked and can give up to date details of trail conditions and road directions. You will also be reminded of car pool time and plans for lunch. We feel that we can give more accurate information after the pre-hike than at print time.
