Every hiker wants to find other people to go with them. It's safer, and it's a lot more fun!
The Edmonton Hikers Group is an association of people from the Edmonton area dedicated to keeping active by hiking together. Events are planned to meet the needs of a number of different levels of fitness and experience. Scheduled hikes usually take place in the evenings and on weekends.
While the most exciting events include trips to the Rockies and other destinations, we also try to keep in shape by hiking on a regular basis in the river valley and at recreational areas around the city. Regular events include weekly walks, hikes and and snowshoe trips, and overnight hiking and camping/hosteling trips in the mountains and around the province.
To participate, all you have to do is sign up, then come out and have fun. Remember to post a photo - we want to encourage friendly participation, and besides, we like to know who we're looking for at the trailhead.
