Welcome to the Tri-Cities Hiking Club (formerly the Maple Ridge Hiking Group).
This club is focused on creating adventures for outdoor enthusiasts . Although the name suggests a focus on the Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody area, and indeed we will be posting a number of hikes in the Bunzten Lake, Burke Mountain, North Coquitlam, Maple Ridge and Mission area, but we will often look for exciting trails farther afield, up to Whistler and beyond or Chilliwack, Hope Manning Park, etc..
We will are also planning to schedule a lot more Canoe and Kayak events.
Because I want to make this club a valuable resource for outdoor enthusiasts, we am very open to suggestions for hiking locations and/or related outdoor activities. Please feel free to post in the forum event ideas or drop the organizers a personal note. In that regard we are also looking for a few other good organizers so we always have a number of exciting activities scheduled. If you think you would like to take on a role like that, please contact Randy to talk about it.
I generally make a comment of hikes whether dogs are welcome. I post some of the hikes as dog friendly and some specifically as "please bring your dog". On the more advanced hikes I usually mention if scrambling is required and whether I think dogs can make it.
My basic policy on dogs (and people) is if they are well behaved they are welcome. If they cause trouble, chase the wildlife, or as happened in one case eats someone's lunch I may not invite them back.
If the hike is appropriate for dogs, feel free to bring your puppy, and if you’re well behaved I will ask the dog to bring you back another time.
