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
CNC Bookstore

Safety Tip:

When participating in snowshoe or hiking trips, carry a backpack with sufficient spare clothing and other gear to spend a night out if that should become necessary. Expect the unexpected, be prepared: http://www.northshorerescue.com/education/what-to-bring/

Friday March 17th

at 7 pm

hosted by Caledonia Ramblers Hiking Club, and presented by Patrick and Dorothy Michiel:

“After reading ‘Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage’ by Alfred Lansing I have always been intrigued by the Antarctic.  What especially struck me was their hike across South Georgia at the end of their rescue voyage.  So when my wife Dorothy and I noted that several adventure cruise lines offered tours to the Antarctic including South George we had to go.  And Indeed we were able to retrace the last of Shackleton’s hike from Fortuna Bay to Stromness Whaling Station.

We were stuck by the wildness and the beauty of the place… the birds, penguins, fur seals and vastness of the glaciers.  A once in a lifetime trip may become a more frequent passion”

Thank you to all those who joined us on our second Winter trip to Jasper.  We had a lot of fun exploring the area on our snowshoes, and enjoying fine food and company in the evenings.  Here’s a tiny taste of our trip:
