*IMPORTANT: Meet in the THETIS OVERFLOW LOT starting this week. We'll continue to meet at 6:15pm, to allow more time for those hikers commuting from town.
Now that it's MAY, to avoid pay-parking, the hikes meet at the OVERFLOW PARKING LOT just below Thetis Lake. It's located on Six Mile Rd after the pedestrian bridge but before the rail bridge - and to the right of Six Mile Rd if you are coming from Old Island Highway. i Come explore the myriad maze of trails that Thetis has to offer! Expect to be out for[masked] hours (we'll start on the shorter side). Hikes will include a variety of routes and distances - beginning around 6-8km for the first few weeks, and building to longer distances (10-15km). We'll decide our route each time when we meet (depending on what the group feels like doing each time). We'll be hiking at a medium-fast pace. Expect roots and mud (lots of mud, especially for the early spring months!) To bring/wear: hiking boots (or very sturdy trail runners - no minimalist footwear, please), gaiters if you want (prepare to get muddy!), and water/snacks. Personal first-aid kit is recommended.
As with all of our events, participants will be required to read and sign our waiver once. 2014 membership cards are $20, and drop-in is $2. After you've signed the waiver, you'll notice a 'W' has been added after your name - which helps us to keep track.
