    What we're about

    We plan to offer two hour beginner hikes in and around the Toronto Area

    I run TrailHike - Richmond Hill Group (intermediate) and wanted to offer some hiking choices to Beginner hikers,

    I do this to be around other folks to share a common interest in Hiking, This is to inform you that me the ORGANIZER along with any future EVENT HOSTS + SWEEPS and any folks that assist in our hikes volunteer their time and receive ZERO COMPENSATION for their efforts

    TO JOIN

    • provide a profile picture

    • complete the 2HR - BEGINNER HIKE WAIVER (ONLINE) (
    https://f.formoid.net/DYi) This is a requirement before RSVP to any 2HR Beginner Hike Events

    • the two items above are required before ACCEPTANCE to the group

    • once the Online Waiver has been completed there will be two ** beside your profile name, you can now RSVP to any/all 2Hr Beginner Events

    GROUP RULES:

    • the hike starts 5 minutes after the posted time, no exceptions,

    • I do not answer txts or calls at this time, leave early if you are concerned about directions

    • be prepared to complete the distance (2hrs - 8k average)

    • if you CANNOT MAKE A HIKE simply change your RSVP to NO, DO NOT POST IN THE COMMENTS, unfortunately when you post in the event comment section it is broadcast to all other participants, I try to eliminate useless posts, change your RSVP if you cannot make the event

    • the Event Comment Section should be used by hikers looking for a ride, please post your CrossRoads and/or a subway stop that you can get to, all ongoing correspondence between hiker and driver should go thru the Meetup Messaging System from that point forward

    • there are no restroom facilities at most of our events, use the bathroom prior to attending

    • yes, we will stop for water break(s) along the trail

    CARPOOL:

    • please post your CrossRoads and/or a subway stop that you can get to, all ongoing correspondence between hiker and driver should go thru the Meetup Messaging System from that point forward

    • we will institute a CARPOOL POLICY to protect the drivers, if you are looking for a ride it is nice to offer $$ to the driver, typically if the trailhead is 1/2 hour away then $5 (includes the return trip)

    THINGS TO BRING:

    • water 2l to all hikes

    • sturdy hike shoes/boots

    • dress for the weather

    • camera/sunblock/etc for an outdoor adventure

    • Gators(optional) - these are leggings that protect your pant bottoms in muddy conditions

    • Rain coat/poncho, we do hike in the rain so be prepared

    HIKE LEADERS:

    I am looking for Hike Leaders in and around Southern Ontario, send me the following information for consideration
