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

Grand Canyon of the Fraser

Perhaps because it was warm and rain was threatening, only 6 hardy souls
showed up the trip to the Grand Canyon on the Fraser.   In reality it
was not a bad day and we got nothing more than a few scattered drops of
rain.   And the snowshoeing was OK.   The warm weather had settled the
snow and we made good time down to Kenneth Creek.  Along the way lots of
moose and snowshoe hare tracks and some tracks of wolves, lynx, marten,
squirrels, grouse and other creatures.   But Kenneth Creek was
open…what were we to do?

Treeline Cabin 003RAMBLERS TREK TO TREELINE, 01 18 15

The Caledonia Ramblers have found a new route to Tabor Mountain’s Treeline cabin. Tim G. led 10 other club members on an official Ramblers’ snowshoe up the new route to the log cabin on Jan. 18. With the new route’s discovery, the cabin may become both a little less remote and possibly once again viewed as a destination by snowshoers, cross-country skiers and hikers alike.
