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

Or order by emailing: caledoniaramblers@yahoo.ca

2015 Ramblers Pizza Party

(For Members only)

For those unable to attend the Ramblers’ March 4 Pizza Party (where members help choose and volunteer to lead hikes this summer), but who are still interested in choosing and/or leading a particular hike or hikes, there is a way to do so.

Just contact Tim Gardner., hiking schedule coordinator, at (250) 301-8247 or tgardner@shaw.ca, or call Nowell Senior, club president, at (250) 562-7485 or caledoniaramblers@yahoo.ca and say what hike or hikes you’d like to lead and what day or days you’d like to do things in. Potential hike leaders should be reasonably familiar with the hike or hikes they propose to lead.

For those still interested in attending the Pizza Party, it’s to held in the common room of Anne George’s condominium complex at 2055 Ingledew St. from 5:30 p.m. to potentially as late as 11 p.m. Lots of free pizza, wine and non-alchoholic drinks will be available. Those attending are just asked to contact Nowell in advance, to confirm their attendance, to help with the ordering of food and drinks.

This year’s party will also include brief presentations regarding the Ramblers’ new SPOT device and satellite phone, both purchased to help aid in potential emergency situations.

And any member who is interested in becoming a hike leader, co-leader, or in learning about the club’s new subsidized first-aid training program is encouraged to attend.
