Each week on Sat. or Sun., there will be a different hike scheduled on the Five Winds trails or possibly on other trails close to the Five Winds trails. The lengths will vary (10-14 km) approx. but it is based on time rather than distance with possible add-ons. Planned route announced on Members Only Google Group on Wednesday before.
Wearing hunter/blaze orange is mandatory.
Registration will open on Wed. afternoon approx. 4 p.m. and will close by Thurs. 9 p.m. (if hike is on Sat.) or Fri. 9 p.m. (if hike is on Sun.). The hike dates are weather dependent which is why the short notice on confirmation of when a hike is planned.
Ski/Snowshoe: We've already had our first taste of winter so these hikes dates could become a ski or snowshoe date instead. It's not uncommon in Nov/Dec to have enough snow to ski/snowshoe one week, and then it's back to hiking the next weekend.
Start Time: 9:30 a.m. (at trailhead)
Finish Time: 4:00 p.m. (back at trailhead)
Share carpool costs: approx. $20.
Guests/Non-Members: $5 contribution to go towards trail maintenance payable to leader at trail head.
Event Organizer: Wendy O.
Maximum Group Size: 12
