What we're about

The Prairie Pathfinders walk in different parts of the city, exploring different neighbourhoods and finding scenic treasures. These urban walks range in length from 5km to 7km and usually lasting about 1hr & 15 min. We use dozens of different routes and many are from our best selling Prairie Pathfinder guidebook 'Winnipeg Walks'

Our weekend hikes explore some of the most scenic and out-of-the-way spots in Manitoba. Many routes are from our guidebook ‘Hiking the Heartland’. They range in length from about 7 to 9 km (usually about 2 hours of walking) at a pleasantly brisk pace.

Note: All walks are 'rain or shine' Participants are expected to arrange their own transportation to all hikes. However with our 'out-of-town' hikes many share rides. You can either post a request for a ride or an offer to give rides on the pertinent Meetup Event Page.

membership - We are no longer a membership club. We ask for a $2 drop-in fee for urban walks and a $6 fee for our 'out-of-town' hikes.

There's a special camaraderie to group walking. Come out and join us and discover for yourself!

Then we’ll follow park trails through towering river bottom forest and along quiet tree-lined streets past the homes of Selkirk’s earliest citizens.
