  • This location is shown only to members

RSVP Opens June 2nd at 8PM.

This is an easy 2.5 km loop with minimal elevation gain of about 20 meters. The trail goes by some nice waterfalls and interesting rock formations.

Novice friendly, get out of the city and into the country. This will take us about 1 to 2 hours at an extremely leisurely pace. Gas Fees are $10 per passenger for this hike.

 Waivers: As per the new policy for waivers; I will bring the group waiver form with me to both the Calgary Meetup location and the trailhead. You must sign it before you will be allowed to go on this hike. You will also be asked to provide the name and phone number of an emergency contact. You are fully aware that organizers are not professional guides and you assume all responsibility for your safety and well-being. You are fully prepared with proper gear and you're physically fit to do this hike with the group.

    A fantastic morning hike, and I even enjoyed our little off trail adventure. And I learnt that I really need to buy a pair of hiking boots

    A 5 star group of hikers who got more than they bargained for when the organizer decided to make his own loop. But thats how memories are made my fellow hikers and now you've all completed your first ( I'm sure for some ) rainy day bushwack experience. You've also proven that you are capable of doing so much more than you thought. Great job ,so proud of you all. Welcome to Slow and Steady and yes a little bit lost :)

    Weather dependent. I will check the forecast in the morning and if it has not changed from rain & thunder showers all day long, I will un-rsvp myself. Will meet at trail head if not raining.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
