CANMORE WALKING WEEKEND Sat/Sun, June 20/21, 2009

The aim of this event is to offer an opportunity for an enjoyable experience while meeting other hikers and discovering Canmore with its access to a wide range of trails and mountain routes in the Bow Valley.

Hiking clubs everywhere should note these dates when planning their Spring program as many clubs aim to organize a trip, perhaps annually, to hike in the Canmore area. Clubs may want to schedule their own hikes on either or both days, giving a bit of a boost to the image and importance of walking and hiking to communities across the province, as well as exploring some new hiking experiences.

Alternatively, join a group coordinated by Trailminders of the Bow Valley, one day-long and one half-day hike on each day, group limit of 20 on each trip.

On the Sunday, June 21, there will be an opportunity for club members to meet over a bowl of meat or veggie chili from 4 – 6pm to end the day.

For those interested in planning for the whole weekend, in addition to B & Bs and motels (group discounts being sought), there are trailer park, campsite and hostel facilities nearby.

Details will follow but if further information is needed meantime, please contact Trailminders at, and please provide club mailing address.

Attached is a summary of ten suggested hikes, some well-used and others lesser known, with all offering views over surrounding natural areas. Access may be limited through trail conditions or wildlife closures.
