What we're about

We plan to offer two & four hour beginner & Advanced hikes in and around the Toronto Area and further throughout ontario and into the US.

I am offering to Beginners who want to grow (intermediate & Advanced options) and a chance to change your fitness level and see amazing sites that will change your life.

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
