"One touch of nature makes the whole world kin" William Shakespeare

Join Hiking Buddies on their next adventure.

New members are warmly welcomed!

Who is this group for? Individuals, couples and young adults who want to hike, socialize and have some fun adventures exploring trials.  The average age of the group is 30 to 65.

When do we hike? Mostly on the weekends and at least twice a month.  Hikes are usually 2 to 4 hours and sometimes include weekends away.  Hiking times, distance, dates and details are found on the membership calendar when you sign up.

Where do we hike? We do a lot of hiking in the Durham Region and mix it up with adventures north, west, south and east of Durham Region to places like Algonquin, Hamilton, Lyndsay and Orangeville.

What Can I expect? Adventures that explore the beauty of nature.  Hiking Buddies is a small business I've delighted in creating.  Hikes are usually 1-4 hours long.  Sign up for as many as you like, each hike is posted on the website with lots or details.  Membership covers all regular hikes and we've been on over 200 in the 4 years.  There are additional costs for special events like weekends away or wine tastings when we stumble out of the woods into a country estate winery.  Come out as often as you can and explore water falls, caves, old growth forests and pot luck socials.

"Let natures peace flow into you, as sunshine flows into the trees.  Absorb the beauty that surrounds, and cares drop off like autumn leaves."  Heather Walter

How much is it? The membership fee is $25 for the calendar year. You are buying my services to organize you, lead you and delight you with new and fun experiences. You are also getting fellowship with the buddies and they are a great bunch!  The best!  Just want to try out a hike?  If you don't enjoy your first hike you will be refunded, no questions asked.  Etransfer memberships to heather@courageousconfidence.com (security question:  what are the best buddies to have?  security answer: hikingbuddies )

How do I join and see the upcoming hikes? Become a member and include your photo, which we use to identify you at hikes. Also include a last name or initial for easy management of payments and attendance records. (If you don't join, you'll miss out on the fun adventures!)
