ABOUT: The TVTA hiking club is a charitable non-profit association that is committed to developing and maintaining our 110 hiking trail. We act as caretakers using volunteer labour, and are financed by donations and club membership fees. Our club has over 500 paid members.
Through our Come Hike & Walk With Us meet up public site, you will experience a portion of our hiking program that brings the beauty of area trails up close at no cost.
Participants will be required to read and sign a waiver form before beginning the walk or hike. Our events are led by volunteer hike leaders certified by Hike Ontario. Hikers are asked to arrive at the meeting site at least 15 minutes before the outing is to begin in order to sign in and to arrange car pooling where applicable. Hike times listed in the hike description are departure times from the meeting location. Proper outdoor clothing, footwear such as sturdy boots, and hiking poles are recommended.
For safety reasons and to ensure the smooth operation of the walk or hike, hike leaders may turn away those who appear to be poorly prepared for the activity or who arrive late.
Those who participate in our walks and hikes do so at their own risk. Hikes can be cancelled on short notice so check the site before leaving to go to the meet spot.
Hike leaders will advertise " family welcome" ( check with leader to see if terrain is suitable for a stroller)otherwise these events are for adults 18 and over.
