Country Hike & Fall Supper

This 'out and back' (total of 14.5 km) hike showcases some of the most scenic countryside in the province. Our route starts at the Miami Golf Club and follows an abandoned rail line as it snakes up a very picturesque section of Manitoba Escarpment.

Hiking the Escarpment is something Prairie Pathfinders always find quite thrilling. In our opinion, it is Manitoba's most important and distinctive land form. And once you reach the top, you have to love that classic panoramic view of a checkerboard of farmland below.

Add to this blissful scenery the advantages to hiking a rail line. For one, we won't be contending with vehicular traffic and secondly, we'll have a nice gentle assent up this steep slope.

event fee - Club members* pay $5. / Non-club members pay $15.(Event fees will be collected at the beginning of the event)

After the hike, we'll enjoy a traditional fall supper at the community hall. That means turkey with all the trimmings and home made desserts. The supper starts at 5 pm and costs $12. (cash only / pay at the door)

* Participants who have a current $25. annual Prairie Pathfinder walking club membership are eligible for the discount event price of $5.

some suggestions -

• Be sure to bring some water for the trail

• You might like to come early to explore the town and maybe have a picnic before the hike. Miami has lovely picnic grounds in the middle of town.

• Consider taking the time to visit  Miami's museums

Miami has been described as the museum capital of Canada. With a population of 500 it has two museums - the Railway Station Museum (one of the oldest stations in MB and a National Historic site) and a Pioneer Museum that does a good job of bringing the history of the area to life.

    Miami has two wonderful museums and you're encouraged to come to Miami early on Sunday as the Pioneer Museum will open for us at 11:30 AM and is well worth the visit. They just renovated and have too many items of interest to list here. Here's a link to more information about it and the Railway Museum: http://manitobatraveller.wordpress.com/2009/06/18/miami-mb-museum-capital-of-the-world/ Hope to see you there!

    Turns out, I have room for one more passenger to Miami. I leave Windsor Park and will be traveling via Osborne, Pembina, and McGilivray (and could go a little off this route).

    I am looking forward to going on the Miami hike this coming Sunday. However, I will be needing a ride and would love to car pool. I live in the Osborne/River area.

    Railway Station Museum will be open from 12:00noon until 1:00 to give us time to visit before the hike. Museum appreciates a donation but there is formal entry fee.
