Next Meetup

Hike the Sudden Tract Trails
We did this hike last November and everybody enjoyed the scenery. I promised I would do this hike in the nicer weather. Enjoy a leisurely walk and take in all the natural beauty North Dumfries has to offer! Trails in North Dumfries are maintained by the Grand River Conservation Authority and Region of Waterloo Agreement Forests. This hike goes for a little over an hour and pets are welcome. Here is the map. Afterwards we will meet for coffee or light lunch at Melvile Cafe.

What we're about

Greetings ... Welcome to this Beginners Hiking group. Please post a recent picture of yourself due to security reasons. If you get lost, we need a recent picture. Thanks!

The hikes go rain, shine or snow. Thunder Storms, snow storms and freezing Temperatures are the only time the hike will be canceled. If the hike is canceled, you will receive an email if you are going and also it will be posted on the message board.

This meetup group hikes once every 3-4 weeks. Hikes start at 10am, fall, winter and spring. In summer, hikes start at 9:30am due to the heat. Most hikes are for 1 hour unless specified on the hike, or about 3.8km. Most hikes we hike for 1/2hr and then turn back. Some hikes we do a loop, but all hikes we return to where we start.

Afterwards you are more than welcome to join us for coffee or a light lunch. All information is posted on the hike.

All you need is a pair of running shoes or boots in winter and water. Please dress appropriate for the weather. Since this is a beginner group nothing more is required. Bug spray and sun screen is suggested in the summer months. Water is also suggested.

Directions with GPS are posted right along with the hike under map.

There is $2.00 fee per hike to help maintain this site, only if you are going for that particular hike.

You do not need to post on the hike if you are not going.

Please feel free to contact me Brendalee, your Organizer, with any ideas you have with regards to hikes that are of interest to you and also how to improve this site.

Transportation is your responsibility, you may post on the hike if you are looking for a ride.

So welcome, join us for some fun and trekking around this beautiful area. The hikes are easy and well maintained.

Bring your friends/guests along and friendly pets are welcome too. Kids are free.

I look forward to seeing you there!
