New Hikers' Evening

The Grand Valley Trails Association presents two New Hikers' Evenings in April.

During these evenings you will learn about Ontario’s system of walking trails with emphasis on our own Grand Valley Trail, The Bruce Trail and the Avon Trail. Long-time hikers and hike leaders Jeanette and Greg Vincent will present information including:

• How the various trail clubs organize hikes on these trails and how you may join them.

• How to find and follow the trails on your own.

• What you need for a day hike - not much, but a few things that will make you more comfortable.

• Boots and socks - hikers with happy feet are the happiest.

• What you can expect to see along the trails in various areas - great views, Spring flowers.

• A few safety tips.

• Bring your questions.

Following these events, Jeanette and Greg will be leading a series of local hikes for new hikers, each in the distance of approximately 7km or 3 hours - details will be posted soon on the Grand Valley Trails Association website

    The ad that I read and four other people was for this group to meet at the Zehrs at Stanley Park on Ottawa.
    There were five of us there , we waited until 7:20, were excited to go but ended up feeling pretty discouraged. Did we miss the right ad ?

      Hi Theresa, the new hikers' evening on Monday was held in the community room at Zehr's South Cambridge location. Unfortunately this was a change of location that happened on the day of the event. I tried to inform all of the attendees, but due to the short notice I wasn't able to reach everyone. I'm very sorry for the inconvenience. We will be hosting a second New Hikers' Evening tonight (Friday, April 11) at Zehr's Stanley Park, as well as some beginner hikes in May that will be posted here soon. I hope you will consider attending!
