What we're about
The Prairie Pathfinders walk in different parts of the city every week, exploring different neighbourhoods and finding scenic treasures. These urban walks are held twice weekly (April through October) - Monday mornings at 10 and Wednesday evenings at 7. They range in length from 5km to 8km 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. They either post a request for a ride or an offer to give rides on the pertinent Meetup Event Page.
membership - Everyone is welcome to participate in our club walks, no membership is required. A seasonal membership costs $25 and with it you receive a name tag & lanyard. ALSO with a membership you don’t need to pay the $2 urban drop-in fee. Most people take out a membership just to show support for the club; it’s not necessary to have one to participate.
IF SO DESIRED: You can take out a membership by picking up a form at one of our events. Complete and return it with $25.
