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

Pidherny Combo loops

The Caledonia Ramblers will be leading a Moderate (C2d) snowshoe/hike called the Pidherny Combo loops at the Pidherny Recreation Site, 12 km northwest of downtown Prince George, on Sunday, Dec. 11th. Participants should bring lots of warm clothing, plus adequate food and a hot drink, as Environment Canada’s current long-range forecast for Dec. 11th calls for a high of -24 C. Participants should also bring both snowshoes and ice cleats with them, in case there is a shortage of snow and possibly icy trails. Please meet 10 minutes before the scheduled departure time of 9 a.m. in the parking lot behind Prince George City Hall. The carpool fee is $2.

THIS SNOWSHOE/HIKE MAY BE SHORTENED, ALTERED OR POSSIBLY CANCELLED DUE TO EXTREMELY COLD WEATHER. BUT A HIKE LEADER WILL BE AT THE CITY HALL PARKING LOT SUNDAY AT 9 A.M. TO CONSULT WITH THOSE WHO SHOW UP.

For more information, please call Judy at 250-962-2453, or Tim at 250-301-8247.

Exciting Winter snowshoe photo needed!

ONE of YOUR photos could be on one of our posters!!

I am looking for an awesome hi-res Winter snowshoe photo that would be put on a poster that we are putting up around PG to promote the club. Any of you have some that would make the poster amazing? Send it my way. Post them here and I’ll choose one from them (from here or responses from the post on our Facebook page). Mountain ones would be the best. Below are some examples, lo-res, unfortunately.
