What we're about

Our mountain ranges are some of the best in the world. We are quite lucky that way. It offers a whole lot of everything; hiking, mountain biking, road biking, downhill skiing, backcountry skiing, and tons more! I have been out hiking, backpacking, cross country skiing, and mountain biking. I love it all and am thirsty for more. I have always wanted to try something different ... kayaking around the Vancouver Island area, mountain biking in Squamish, cross-country skiing in Vernon, portaging in the beautiful Ontario parks, and much more. Unfortunately, my weekdays are jam-packed which makes it hard to play in new places. I know I am not alone when it comes to busy weekdays!

My goal through this meetup is to organize trips around a mix of activities and xplore our local grounds. More importantly, get a break from our busy lives, enjoy the outdoors, and have a ton of fun with fellow xplorers! I'll start with hiking & backpacking for now.

Check out some of our upcoming events and feel free to message me if you have any questions or suggestions!

Thank you for joining & I look forward to meeting you!

We can do elk island some days, pick a route in the river valley, even try out new terrain! we will change it up ... What: - Hike 2-3 hrs. - New hikers should have a small pack, approx 20 lbs. When: - Last Saturdays of every month, regardless of rain / snow (unless it's -30) :). Where: - I will create a monthly schedule, we'll know in advance :) Carpooling: - Please announce your area if you have a car and wouldn't mind picking some people up on the way. - $5/person for the car lead. In town hikes. - $10/person for the car lead. Out of out hikes. Notes: - Wear comfortable footwear for long walks - Bug spray / sun screen / Rain jacket as needed. - Fluids / snacks for the day Hope to see you all! PS: this will be a pet-friendly hike.
