We are an informal group of people with a common interest in day hiking and multi-day backpacking trips. All skill levels welcome. Have an idea for a day trip, weekend trip or multi-day adventure? Post it to the group, suggest a meetup or start a thread on the discussion board! Anyone can coordinate a trip and anyone can join a trip.
Hope to see you all out and about,
Note to trip coordinators (i.e. if you post a trip):
1) You don't have to be an organizer on this site to post a trip. However, if you are added to the organizer list you'll have access to a few more features on this site, like the ability to email everyone who has RSVPd for your trip. If you would like to be added to the organizer list let me (Adrienne) know.
2) Try to provide enough detail about your trip so that people can assess if it's the type of adventure they're looking for... obvious, I know.
3) The trip coordinator's role is to facilitate carpooling and suggest a trail. Participation is entirely at the individual's own risk.
******************DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY*********************
The Ottawa backpacking group is not a club or organization. Participation is entirely at the individual’s own risk. The trip coordinator's role is to facilitate carpooling and suggest a trail. We use the meetup.com website as a communication tool to share information about local area trails and to arrange carpooling. We typically meet for day hikes or multi-day hikes.
