Our purpose is to have frequent, casual, energetic hiking events that fit easily into busy lives. Many of our hikes range from 5 to 10 km within 1.5 to 2 hours, so our pace is generally pretty quick. We stick (mostly) to established, well-groomed trails so we can keep the pace lively. We climb and descend hills because it's fun. We breathe hard and sweat profusely because we're having a good time.
There will usually be a few hikes per week, somewhere between Rouge Park in Scarborough, Greenwood in Ajax, and East Duffins Headwaters in Uxbridge. We'll often have weekend hikes that are a little longer (sometimes MUCH longer), and sometimes travel much further if there's an adventure to be had.
We'll usually put a limit on the number of hikers that can attend any event. The actual limit is completely up to the event host. Please respect the limit and only attend a hike if you are confirmed on the RSVP list.
There is one exception to the event limit rule: anyone with a group title of FAST is allowed to attend a hike even if they're on the wait list. That's a reward for being an active member. It currently takes *20* hikes with this group to be awarded the FAST title. You may even be granted a trail name, too!
That's about it! If you have questions, want to suggest a hike, or volunteer to be an event host, contact somebody in the leadership team.
