Are you looking for the most current information about our local trails?   Then look no further then the Caledonia Ramblers Trail Guide!  It is the most current trail guide for the trails around Prince George, and we update it regularly.  We know what the current access of the trails is like, and other important information as we hike up the trails frequently.   And the best part is if you buy one of our trail guides (or both), you are supporting maintenance of our trails.  Our club spends a good deal of the Summer working on the trails so that they are easily accessible to all hikers, club members or not.  You might even be lucky to spot some of our members cleaning a trail that you are hiking on.  Without the help of the volunteer trail workers, there would be no trail!

If you are interested in all the hiking opportunities in and around Prince George, then you must pick up a copy of these two trail guides. They contain complete descriptions of over 50 trails, along with directions and trail ratings.

These guides are available from:

Books & Company Spruceland News
Tourism PG UNBC Bookstore
McBride Tourism Info Centre Valemount Tourism Info Centre
The Wild Life CNC Bookstore
Valemont Museum and Archives

Boulder Mountain

An even dozen set out on what turned out to be a very nice Sunday. This included two new people, Laurie Mercer and Alex Zhou, who came out to hike with the club for the first time. As we met in the parking lot, I feel I put the fear into everyone after noting the conditions of the trail were not so good just a couple of weeks before. Nancy, Melanie, Rikki, and myself had done a reconnaissance two weeks before under wetter conditions. Today, the trail was drier and there was no real problem at all. The overgrowth didn’t seem so bad in the middle section. Dave, did you go through this??? There were split trees and blow downs (mostly in the mid-section leading up to the meadow), but it wasn’t too bad. Very few bugs and reports of the potential for light rain never materialized – it was a beautiful sunny day to do the hike.
