What we're about

Please read the waiver and other documents under Pages (https://www.meetup.com/CalgaryHikingMeetup/about/) (found under More). (You may have to use a browser to access files.)

I've moved to Canmore, so I've started engaging a small number of additional organizers. Every group, organizer, and trip is independent and different. Read carefully and ask questions. Please provide feedback, first, directly to your organizer, and then to me.

Read a variety of topics in the Message Board (https://www.meetup.com/CalgaryHikingMeetup/messages/boards/) (found under More).

First created in 2006, this group is focused on sharing the natural environment with group-minded people for year-round activities from walks to scrambles, to enjoy the scenery, take pictures, appreciate the company, and occasionally socialize off-trail. As of end of 2018, I've organized about 295 trips through Meetup and enjoyed/led hundreds more outside of Meetup.

We encourage our members to learn about conservation issues and provide your input into issues affecting our natural places.

Our trips tend to be smaller groups and slower-paced (but of course pace is relative). No-shows are bad!

I'm trying to keep it informal and friendly. At the same time, I'm trying to create a certain kind of group: there are a bunch of rules, guidelines, and a waiver. Read the whole trip description please.

Be prepared, be safe, and care for yourself, each other, and the environment.

I encourage you to have a profile with a photo of yourself, and more than a first name so we can remember you better.

Only people who are listed as "Organizer" or "Co-organizer" can speak on behalf of the Group.

If that all sounds good to you, then welcome, and I hope to meet you on a trip soon.
