    Just clarifying that you generally meet where the arena is not the tennis courts right?

    July 8, 2014

  • Linda V

    I will meet the group at the trailhead at 10 am !!

  • Linda V

    Another newbie question...... since I was 9th on the waitlist, I made plans for a different hike -- am I allowed to bring a friend, now that you opened up the waitlist ??

    July 7, 2014

  • wayne

    Going to make the list up to 21 members so everyone on the waitlist can make it.

    Sorry I was tardy in answering any questions as I camping in a area with no cell service or wifi. I will see everyone at 8am if I,m a few minutes late don't fret as I probably got delayed in traffic.My co-host can't make.

    July 7, 2014

  • Gail

    Check back on the waitlist. Things change all the time. Keep checking back.

      ok, thanks

  • Linda V

    Sorry, new here - my first hike with this group. Not sure how the waitlist works..... is it safe to assume that if my status is still waitlist, there is no room? I would expect to have been contacted by now if there were cancellations? Thanks.

      Hi Linda. If you are on the waitlist, it means that there is not a place available for you. If somebody decides not to go, those on the waitlist occupy those positions.

    Hi, Unfortunatly I can't drive tomorrow up to the trail head so I would like to ask if there will be any spot in a car from Shouldice Arena. I guess Silvia has the same problem since I told her she could come with me, so actually 2 spots.

      July 7, 2014

    • Silvia

      I haven't received any?

      July 7, 2014

  • Asya

    Hello guys, should we make 2 groups as there are 7 people on the wait list already? It is my day off and I would really like to join this beautiful hike! :) Thank you for your suggestions in advance.

    July 6, 2014

  • Silvia

    I will be coming from NE, any chance I could get a lift?

    July 4, 2014

  • Emily

    I am so happy to have a spot, could anyone let me know if any passenger seat available? I will pay cash. Thank you, [masked]

    Dogs are welcome

    June 20, 2014

    • wayne

      Actually anywhere in K-Country its bear country,all l can say is dogs should be on leash,and its the owners risk if they bring their dog into bear country.

      June 27, 2014

    • Andy D.

      Leashed dogs are fine on Slow and Steady hikes. 100% the owners responsibility. Same goes for children. Common sense is what's called for. Chester is an easy hike but I wouldn't bring kids or dogs on a scramble.

      July 3, 2014

  • Linda H.

    This is a hike I have always wanted to do and finally I get to! I'll meet you at the trailhead.

    July 2, 2014

  • James Van N.

    I am coming in from Canmore - I will meet you at the trail head - Black SUV Tahoe
