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 Valemont Museum and Archives
Tourism PG UNBC Bookstore
McBride Tourism Info Centre Valemount Tourism Info Centre

Ancient Forest Helicopter Help

The final phase of the Ancient Forest Trail Tread Protection Project has received a huge boost thanks to Keith Buchanan and his wife Michaela Veeken of Purden Ski and Lake Resort who are donating over $7,000 of helicopter time to fly 16 tons of materials into the forest. The helicopter is scheduled to do this work Friday June 3rd. This help will save the Ramblers weeks of labor carrying these materials by hand, so a big thank-you to Keith and Michaela for their generous contribution – THANK-YOU!
